Cam Newton, Von Miller Take Home Rookie of the Year Awards

The AP Award results are in, and Cam Newton and Von Miller are taking home some hardware. Newton has been named AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, and Miller was named AP Defensive Rookie of the year.

Newton made the Pro Bowl after a year in which he had 4,051 yards passing with 21 touchdowns through the air, as well as 706 rushing yards and 14 more touchdowns on the ground.

His ability to adjust to the NFL so quickly was not only surprising, it was almost unheard of and he is totally deserving of that award.

Miller finished the year with 64 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 21 t ackles for loss, and three forced fumbles. He truly was a force of nature from the very moment he stepped on a practice field for the Broncos. I was at training camp, and I can say first hand that you can just see how special this guy is. He blows by offensive linemen like they are standing in cement.

He made the Pro Bowl and had two sacks on Cam Newton in the game.
