The 2019 NFL season sits just over a week away. The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears get the party started on Thursday night with a rematch of last year's epic comeback from Aaron Rodgers.

Before the new campaign begins, a new poll took a look at the most marketable names in the game.

According to the poll run by Sports Business Journal, a star quarterback was viewed as the most-marketable. The selection should come as no surprise - it's New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

He's had one of the top selling jerseys during the entirety of his NFL career and is the winningest quarterback in NFL history.

Here's the top-10 from Pro Football Talk:

  1. Tom Brady
  2. Patrick Mahomes
  3. Odell Beckham Jr.
  4. Baker Mayfield
  5. Saquon Barkley
  6. Aaron Rodgers
  7. J.J. Watt
  8. JuJu Smith-Schuster
  9. Drew Brees
  10. Dak Prescott

It's a solid mix of fresh faces and savvy veterans. Of course, the most marketable position in football is at the quarterback spot. That's highlighted in the poll, with quarterbacks taking six of the top 10 spots.

Pass rushers and wide receiver filled out the other few spots on the list.

It's just another in a long list of wins for Tom Brady. Haven't we had enough already?
