Odell Beckham Jr.'s Giants jersey is June's best-seller

Odell Beckham Jr. had the best-selling jersey in the NFL in June. The New York Giants wide receiver, who was fifth in the May rankings based on sales on NFLShop.com, the league's official site, jumped past Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota to take the No. 1 spot.

Mariota had the second-best-selling jersey last month, and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, despite an offseason of Deflategate, remained in the No. 3 spot.

Nine of the top 10 best-selling jerseys from May remained in the top 10, save for Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray, who went from No. 11 to No. 9, and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, whose jersey slipped from 10th to 12th.

Within the top 10, No. 1 overall draft pick Jameis Winston slipped from No. 2 in May to No. 8 in June. No other rookies made the top 25.

While Beckham, the 2014 offensive rookie of the year, hasn't had a chance to show his flash in games in the offseason, he's been quite the social media star. Last month, a speedy softball pitch he threw at a charity game garnered the attention of the sports world. On Tuesday, Beckham posted a video on Instagram of himself catching passes from a ball machine while lying down.

The jersey of Beckham, who finished the season with 91 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns, skyrocketed to relevancy after he made a one-handed circus catch for a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football on Nov. 23.
