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

6. Julio Jones

Jones broke his foot  five games into the 2013 season, ending what was supposed to be a promising year for the Atlanta Falcons. Jones’ absence in the lineup took a toll on the injury riddled Falcons to the tune of them drafting sixth overall in May’s draft.

But Jones proved to be one of the NFL’s premier wide receivers yet again in 2014. He’s hauled in 53 passes for 734 yards and three touchdowns, eye-popping numbers for a team with two wins through early November.

Still, Jones ranks ninth in the league in receiving despite his quarterback Matt Ryan playing wildly inconsistent behind a patchwork offensive line.
