Earlier this month,, the online merchandise shop of the National Football League, announced that Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu had the top-selling jersey for the year between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011.

Polamalu, already well-known for his fearless defensive play and advertiser-insured locks, was named the Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year, prior to Super Bowl XLV outside Dallas.

Other Steeler jerseys on the top-selling list include quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wide receiver Hines Ward. Packer linebacker Clay Matthews makes the list at No. 8.
