Rodgers wins Bart Starr Award

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be honored with the 2014 Bart Starr Award, Athletes in Action, the organization that sponsors the award, announced yesterday. Rodgers played in just 9 games this season, throwing for a total of 2,536 yards and 17 TDs. 

The award, given annually to an NFL Player who shows outstanding character and leadership on and off field, will be given to #12 during January 31's NFL sanctioned Super Bowl Breakfast. 

Besides Rodgers, Steelers Safety Ryan Clark and Vikings DE Jared Allen were also finalists for the prize, but, since Rodgers received just about every single counted vote, neither of them came close to winning it.
