Despite the Broncos 4-12 season, there have been some impressive individual accomplishments on this year’s squad. Take for example, Brandon Lloyd.
In his 8th season in the NFL, Lloyd had a career year hauling down 77 catches for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns. That was good enough for him to end the 2010 season as the league’s leading receiver.
Because of Lloyd’s performance this year, he is up for nomination for VIZIO’s Top Value Performer Award. The finalists for the award are picked based on season statistics and how influential they were to their team. That is then measured up against the player’s base salary.
Lloyd definitely exceeded the value of his contract ($755,000) and was an easy pick as VIZIO’s Tope Value Performer Award.
Former Bronco Peyton Hillis was also one of five finalists chosen for this award. The third year appeared to be the charm for Hillis who had 1,177 yard on 270 carries and 11 rushing touchdowns. Hillis also had 61 receptions for 477 yards and 2 receiving touchdowns. What a way to prove Josh McDaniels wrong, huh?
The other three finalists up for nomination include Giants’ RB Ahmad Bradshaw, Steelers’ LB LaMarr Woodley, and Bills’ WR Stevie Johnson.
The winner will be chosen based on online fan voting. To make Lloyd the winner, go here and vote.
This is the 4th year of the contest at VIZIO. The past winners of the award are David Garrard, Matt Cassel, and Jets’ WR Steve Smith.
