Patrick Mahomes has supplanted Tom Brady as the quarterback of the AFC representative in the Super Bowl and he's also taken Brady's spot as the player generating the most merchandise sales.

The NFL Players Association announced on Monday that officially licensed NFL player-identified merchandise featuring Mahomes outsold that of any other player between March 1 and November 30. The NFLPA release also said that the union anticipates Mahomes will remain in first place when the entire year's figures are in.

The NFLPA tracks sales from more than 75 licensees producing items that include apparel, video games, bobbleheads and more. Those sales exceeded $1.6 billion in 2018, which marked a new record for sales for the fifth straight year.

Brady was No. 1 the last two years and the Patriots quarterback is now No. 2 behind Mahomes.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham, Bears linebacker Khalil Mack, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, Giants running back Saquon Barkley and Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster round out the Top 10.

Belichick might want to begin anew with a quarterback he feels is good and who costs significantly less-someone like 32-year-old Andy Dalton; the Patriots would probably have to pay a third or fourth-round pick for Dalton, who has a year left on his contract and no future in Cincinnati. The Patriots have two thirds and two fourths, including a likely third-round compensatory pick. If Belichick makes up his mind that it's time to move on from Brady, then my argument is moot.

During an interview with ESPN, his first since being hit with a suspension after slugging Rudolph in the head with Rudolph's own helmet in the final seconds of a Browns win on Nov. 14, Garrett said Rudolph called the defensive end ''the N-word. Rudolph, as he did when Garrett made the claim while appealing the suspension in November, called the allegation ''a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character.
