Snubbed? CBS Includes Minkah Fitzpatrick On Defensive Player Of Year List

The National Football League announced their finalists for the various awards at the 2022 NFL honors this season on Good Morning Football Wednesday morning, listing the finalists for MVP, Coach of the Year, Rookie of the Year, and various other categories. No Pittsburgh Steelers made the cut as a finalist, leaving the likes of S Minkah Fitzpatrick, QB Kenny Pickett, and HC Mike Tomlin in the potential snub category after not receiving consideration.

However, Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports thought that Fitzpatrick was worthy of consideration for AP Defensive Player of the Year, naming him one of the snubs in their recent piece highlighting the finalists nominated, predictions on the winner in each category, and snubs from the finalist list.
