Brian Cushing's Positive Tests Spurs AP To Revote On Rookie Of The Year

After Brian Cushing's suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, quite a few folks were upset because he had the Associated Press rookie of the year award. He was also a second team All-Pro, courtesy of AP voters.

Those that were upset at this are getting their wish. According to various reports, the AP will conduct a re-vote for the rookie of the year.

Cushing is still eligible but voters are now filling out their ballots knowing that he violated the PED policy his rookie year.

Last year, Cushing received 39 votes, Jairus Byrd had six, Clay Matthews landed three and Brian Orakpo had two. Presumably, Cushing will not end up with 39 votes or more this time.

The AP is also conducting a re-vote for outside linebacker on the All-Pro team.
