The Most Valuable Player trophy is officially called the Pete Rozelle Trophy, named after the late commissioner of the NFL – who held the position from 1960-89. A panel of 16 pro football writers, and fans – who can vote on the recipient of the award online – decide which player will win.
Quarterbacks most often win the award as QBs have won 31 out of 55 times. The last non-QB to hoist the Rozelle Trophy was former Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, who won the award three years ago in a New England victory over the Rams. Edelman had 141 yards receiving in the outing.
