Web Exclusive: More Manziel Jerseys being sold than any other rookie

Posted: Updated:
(CBS) - It's been less than a week since the NFL draft and the player selling the most jerseys is from East Texas.  New Cleveland Brown quarterback, Johnny Manziel, who won the Heisman trophy while at Texas A&M tops the list for rookie jersey sales.  The league wouldn't say exactly how many #2 Manziel jerseys were sold, but did say they sold nearly as many Manziel jerseys during draft weekend as RGIII, Andrew Luck & Tim Tebow did during their draft weekend combined.  The league says the second most popular rookie jersey is Michael Sam.  Sam became the first openly gay NFL draft pick when the St. Louis rams chose him in the last round.

If you've ever wanted to tune out some annoying users on twitter, here's your chance!  Twitter introduced a mute button.  It lets you filter out tweets from people you'd quote - "like to hear from less."  If you mute a user, their tweets and retweets won't show up on your twitter timeline.  
And don't worry, users won't know that you've muted them.
