Casey Hayward takes 3rd in Defensive Rookie of Year voting

Posted by Mike Spofford on February 2, 2013 – 7:39 pm

Packers CB Casey Hayward finished third in the Associated Press voting for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Panthers LB Luke Kuechly won the award by getting 28 of the 50 votes. Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner was second with 11 votes, followed by Hayward with six. Rounding out the voting were Rams CB Janoris Jenkins (3) and Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (2).

Hayward led the Packers and all NFL rookies with six interceptions in 2012. Hayward was trying to become the first Packers player to win AP’s Defensive Rookie of the Year award since CB Willie Buchanon in 1972.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers earned two votes for Offensive Player of the Year. That award went to Minnesota RB Adrian Peterson.

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 17, 2012 – 2:32 pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been named the NFC’s offensive player of the year among the recipients of this year’s NFL 101 Awards.

Rodgers’ counterpart as the AFC offensive player of the year was New England QB Tom Brady. Minnesota DE Jared Allen and Baltimore LB Terrell Suggs won the NFC and AFC defensive awards, while San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh and Houston’s Gary Kubiak were the two coaches honored.

A national media committee, comprised of 101 sportswriters and broadcasters who cover the NFL, selected the winners in each award category in a nationwide vote at the conclusion of the regular season.

The award winners will be presented trophies at the 42nd annual NFL 101 Awards gala in Kansas City on March 3.
