Packers RB Eddie Lacy AP top offensive rookieSubmitted: 02/01/2014
Story By Associated Press

NEW YORK - Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy has won The Associated Press NFL
Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

A second-round pick (61st overall) from Alabama, Lacy was a key performer in
the Packers' offense, particularly when star quarterback Aaron Rodgers was
sidelined for seven games. He rushed for 1,178 yards on 284 carries (4.1
average), with 11 touchdowns. He also had 35 receptions.

That was good enough for 35 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members
who regularly cover the league in balloting announced Saturday night.

The first Packer to win the award since John Brockington in 1971, Lacy beat out
San Diego wide receiver Keenan Allen, who received 12 votes.

He is the first running back to take the offensive rookie honors since Adrian
Peterson in 2007.
