6 NFL Comeback Player of the Year Candidates

Sam Spiegelman lists the 6 leadings candidates for NFL comeback player of the year with one surprise on defense.

Rob Gronkowski

3. Jeremy Maclin

After missing all of 2013 with a torn ACL, Maclin entered 2014 in a very pressure-filled situation. Not only did he settle for a one-year prove-me sort of contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, but he was forced to take on the production left behind by the recently released DeSean Jackson.

Well, Maclin answered the call. His 790 receiving yards is good for fifth in the NFL, and his eight touchdown receptions is two shy of his career-high set back 2010.

Maclin is far and away the most reliable and talented wide receiver right now on the Philadelphia roster, and is deserving of a more long-term, lucrative deal in the offseason.
