He was far-and-away the most-searched NFLer in 2023, and ironically, the next-closest player on this list also plays for a New York team. That was New York Jets' QB Aaron Rodgers, who registered 2.5 million monthly searches on Google this calendar year.

As such, Rodgers was the most-searched quarterback on the list. Meanwhile, former New York Giants' standout Odell Beckham Jr. was the most-searched wide receiver in 2023.
