I’m a James Conner fan. But I’m absolutely certain this is going to be taken the wrong way.
How can Conner have the No. 1-selling jersey in the NFL? How can a third-round draft pick have the highest-selling jersey before he ever plays a professional down? CONNER IS A BACKUP, FFS.
Conner’s story is inspirational: He’s a cancer survivor who came back from a grievous knee injury.
But is an inspirational story what’s most marketable now? Can battling tragedy add up to a career break? Wow.
