Niner Noise has predicted that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will win the MVP award this season.
With two league MVP awards already in the bag, will Aaron Rodgers go on to win a third?
Maniego also predicts the offensive and defensive rookies of the year, the offensive and defensive players of the year, and the comeback player of the year.
Rodgers could be in the running for a few of those categories. Not only could he once again be named league MVP, Rodgers could also win the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award after missing over half the 2017 season with a broken collarbone. Former teammate Jordy Nelson won the award two years ago.
Maniego doesn’t have Rodgers to win those awards, but does think he’ll take away the most prestigious of them all:
"“However, knowing the type of competitor he is, Rodgers should prevail against all odds. And with the addition of tight end Jimmy Graham and the emergence of wide receiver Davante Adams, the legendary QB can further his legacy even further as one of the best to ever play the game.”"
Of course, Rodgers would rather win the Super Bowl over MVP if he had to make a choice. Whether it’s fair or not, quarterbacks are often judged by the number of championships they have. Rodgers is still looking to add a second ring eight years after winning his first.
With the additions the Packers have made this offseason, including giving Rodgers a dominant red zone target in Jimmy Graham, now could be the year for the team to return to the big game in February.
Who do you think will win the league MVP award this season?
