Morgan Burnett is Packers' nominee for Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award

Rams left guard Rodger Saffold is one of 32 players nominated for the 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award. "Cam is not like that", said assistant head coach/defensive line coach John Mitchell. What I like about him is when he encourages a player, or corrects a player, he is correcting himself.

According to a press release from NFL Communications, the award was created three years ago in honor of the late founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Hall of Famer Art Rooney Sr.

Current NFL players will vote on the award, which will be announced prior to the Super Bowl in February.

As with Pro Bowl voting, a team can not vote for its own player for the Rooney Award, which was created to recognize "an National Football League player who best demonstrates the qualities of on-field sportsmanship, including fair play, respect for the game and opponents, and integrity in competition".

The victor of the award will be announced during the NFL Honors show on February 3, 2018 on NBC.

We'll have to keep our fingers crossed to see whether another Colt can win this award for a consecutive season, although the heavy favorites are probably well-respected veteran players (much like Gore last year) such as the New Orleans Saints Drew Brees or San Diego Chargers Antonio Gates among others. "It's appropriate. I like to think of my grandfather as someone who truly was a good sport, somebody who cared about the respect and the integrity of the game".
