Jets working again Breece Hall took being snubbed within the nominations for this 12 months’s NFL Honors ceremony in stride.
Whereas half of the web lamented Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig lacking out on Oscar nominations for “Barbie,” the opposite half complained about NFL award voters overlooking Corridor within the Related Press Comeback Participant of the Yr class.
As a substitute, the finalists are Browns quarterback Joe Flacco, Payments security Damar Hamlin, Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield, Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford and Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
After coming back from a season-ending ACL damage in 2022, Corridor completed 2023 with 299 touches and 1,585 yards from scrimmage, becoming a member of working backs Christian McCaffrey and Rachaad White as the only players with at the very least 900 dashing yards and 500 receiving yards this season.
Corridor was the top receiving back within the league, totaling probably the most targets (95), receptions (76) and receiving yards (591) amongst working backs.
He definitely deserved a nomination, and whereas he was gracious to the opposite nominees, it is honest to surprise if Flacco and Mayfield, specifically, needs to be in over Corridor.
Flacco performed in 5 video games, lower than a 3rd of the season, whereas Mayfield can be higher suited to a “Most Improved Participant” class, which begs the query: Why does not the NFL have a “Most Improved Participant” class?
As a substitute, Corridor has a complete offseason to make use of the snub as motivation in order that it does not occur once more. Possibly this time subsequent 12 months, individuals will solely be mad on the Academy.
