CHICAGO – If you had to ask Bears fans who the most popular member of their team is at the moment, they would probably point to their quarterback.
It appears that many are using their pocketbooks to show that about Justin Fields as well, based on some numbers concerning merchandise sales released by the NFLPA on Friday.

Khalil Mack, who was traded by the Bears in March to the Los Angeles Chargers, came in 48th on the list.
Considered in this list are the sales for each player in all forms of merchandise, from jerseys to T-Shirts, from bobbleheads to rugs, and even slide sandals. Fields made some waves when it comes to his jersey earlier this year when Lids announced that his No. 1 was the top seller not only in Illinois but also in the State of Wisconsin.
