This weekend isn’t just about the best team in the NFL being crowned.
Other things, like the newest class of Pro Football Hall of Fame will be announced, in addition to an award Bucs fans will be paying close attention.
On Saturday the Associated Press will hand out their annual awards, including announcing the NFL Rookie of the Year winner.
Bucs rookie QB Jameis Winston is a strong candidate after being just one of three rookie passers in the NFL to pass for over 4,000 yards, and also finishing with 28 total touchdowns, again, an accomplishment only three other rookies in the history of the league have achieved.
This week, polled media members including former 49ers and Lions head coach Steve Mariucci, said they would choose Winston as their choice for rookie of the year honors. Mariucci was joined by fellow analysts Ladanian Tomlinson, Nate Burleson, Dave Dameshek, Judy Battista and Ike Taylor who all picked Winston over Rams running back Todd Gurley and Raiders’ WR Amari Cooper.
