Dick's Sporting Goods sold more Cleveland Browns Johnny Manziel jerseys than it did the next three quarterbacks combined, the retailer announced Friday.

Manziel had the top-selling jersey at Dick's and sold more jerseys than quarterbacks Andrew Luck (No. 2 overall), Peyton Manning (No. 3) and Robert Griffin III (No. 5) put together.

Browns OC Shanahan says Manziel worth first-round pick

The Browns drafted the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner with the No. 22 pick in the 2014 draft out of Texas A&M. He lost the quarterback battle to Brian Hoyer and will open the season as Cleveland's backup quarterback.

Manziel also had the top-selling jersey in the NFL during the first quarter of the league's fiscal year.

The Browns open the regular season on Sunday when they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers.
