The choice for 2014 NFL offensive rookie of the year was an easy one.
Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who shook off an injury-plagued start of the season to become one of the league’s most exciting playmakers, has been named the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year. The award was announced on Saturday night at the NFL Honors event in Phoenix.
The award went to Beckham, who “got 42 of the 50 votes”. Second was Dallas Cowboys guard Zack Martin with seven votes while Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans got the last vote. Beckham and Hill, along with wide receiver Jarvis Landry, were teammates at LSU last year.
“We’d be in the middle of our game and they would be playing and I’d be looking up at the (scoreboard) trying to see what they’re doing, trying to see if they scored,” Beckham said. “Those are like my brothers. I want to see them be successful. We’re really very tight.”
Beckham said there was no competition with Hill’s five 100-yard games.
“That’s like a brother of mine, we just want to see each other do well,” he said. “Look out for Jarvis, too. He’s a beast down in Miami.
Congrats to ODB3!
