Irvine-based VIZIO honored New York Wide Receiver Victor Cruz with the Top Value Performer award for 2011. The award recognizes professional football players whose on-field performance significantly exceeds expectations and the value of their salary.
From Jan. 9 to Jan. 23, fans had the opportunity to vote for who best exemplified this trend throughout the 2011 NFL season. Cruz, ending his regular season with 82 receptions (the third most in the league) 9 touchdowns, and a $405,000 salary, earned the most votes out of the record-breaking 300,000 total votes.
Cruz was selected from among finalists that included Dallas wide receiver Laurent Robinson, New England tight end Rob Gronkowski, Chicago running back Matt Forte and San Francisco line backer NaVorro Bowman.
Previous Top Value Performer honorees have included Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard, Kansas City Quarterback Matt Cassel, Philadelphia wide receiver Steve Smith and Buffalo wide receiver Stevie Johnson.
"It's been an amazing year, and I'm thankful for all the fans who voted me as the Top Value Performer," said Cruz. "The other players up for the award were equally deserving, as they all had great seasons, but I'm proud to represent New York and the G-Men."
