Tom Brady named No. 1 player in NFL Top 100 list for second straight year

Tom Brady’s third NFL MVP award has come with a third serving of superlative honors in the NFL Top 100 list.

For the second straight year, the Patriots quarterback has been voted by his NFL peers as the league’s No. 1 player. Brady first topped the list when it debuted in 2011 following his second MVP season.

The NFL’s countdown from 100 wrapped up Monday night, when the league’s official Twitter account dubbed Brady “The Greatest of All Time” while announcing his return to the No. 1 spot.

Brady, who turns 41 in August, showed no signs of slowing down in his 17th season. He led the league with 4,577 passing yards while completing 32 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.

Though this year’s ranking doesn’t come with a sixth championship ring, Brady still managed to set a Super Bowl record during New England’s 41-33 loss to the Eagles with a whopping 505 passing yards.

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown took the No. 2 spot on the list, up from No. 4 last year. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz came in at No. 3 despite missing the end of the regular season and the entire playoffs due to injury. Falcons receiver Julio Jones was fourth, ahead of Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell (No. 5).

Brady may not be able to continue to pile on his MVP awards while playing into his mid-40s, but the future Hall of Famer knows he’ll always score high marks from his fellow players.
