Those Pernell McPhee Bears jerseys aren’t exactly flying off the shelves at department stores.

The NFL released their top 25 selling jerseys for May and no Bears made the list.

Marcus Mariota topped Jameis Winston for the top spot. Deflategate didn’t take any air out of Tom Brady’s sales; the Patriots QB is third.

Rounding out the Top 10 are: Russell Wilson, Odell Beckham Jr., Rob Gronkowski, Colin Kaepernick, Dez Bryant, Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning.

J.J. Watt has the highest-ranked jersey for a defensive player at No. 12.

Tim Tebow, who is trying to make a comeback with the Eagles, had the 15th best selling jersey for May.

Besides Mariota and Winston, the only other rookies to make the list were Melvin Gordon (24) and Amari Cooper (25).
