Eleven players received one vote

In his first season with the Jets, Tebow has been used in many capacities, but barely as a quarterback. Tebow has thrown just three passes all season (two completions), but has rushed 23 times for 78 yards. He has also been used on special teams, and as a decoy player.

Last season, he and the Broncos won six regular-season games in a row. Tebow's biggest game was a 29-23 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs. He completed 10-of-21 passes for 316 yards in that game, eventually throwing the game-winning touchdown to Demaryius Thomas. The following week, the Broncos were eliminated by the Patriots in a one-sided 45-10 loss.
