Rodger Saffold Nominated For Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award

For his exemplary performance on the field, the Seahawks have nominated Avril for the coveted 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award, named after the founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Art Rooney Sr.

The latter quality has been just as inherent in Robison as the instincts that helped him make the play.

Past recipients of the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award are Frank Gore of the Indianapolis Colts (2016), Charles Woodson of the Oakland Raiders (2015) and Minneapolis native Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals (2014).

Obviously, it's a nice honor for Hilton, who's one of the best players on the Colts and now has 36 receptions for 725 receiving yards (which are the 4th most in the league) and 3 touchdown receptions on the season. From the list, each team's players will submit a consensus vote of their choice for the victor. The victor is announced during the NFL Honors show the night before Super Bowl LII. The annual award goes to the National Football League player who demonstrates "outstanding sportsmanship on the playing field".

Current players will have the final say when the eight appear on their Pro Bowl ballot under NFL Sportsmanship Award.

A panel of former players from the NFL Legends community - comprised of Warrick Dunn, Curtis Martin, Karl Mecklenburg, and Leonard Wheeler - will select eight finalists from the 32 nominees.

The victor will receive a $25,000 donation to the charity of his choosing as well as a trophy.
