Antonio Brown has been voted the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ 2015 MVP.
His teammates vote Antonio Brown their 2015 MVP. Guessing his maniacal work ethic and production were 2 of the reasons why.

It’s no surprise considering his off-the-charts production, surpassing his 2014 numbers despite not having Ben Roethlisberger for three full games. Brown enters the final week of the season with 123 receptions, 1647 yards, and nine touchdowns. He also returned a punt for a 71 yard touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts.
Brown blew the doors off two single-game franchise records against the Oakland Raiders, catching 17 passes for 284 yards. He’s had four games of 10+ catches and three with 150+ yards. He’s become the fourth receiver in NFL history to have two career 1600 yard seasons.
All he’s done is continue to establish himself as the best receiver in the league, driven by an incredible work ethic that rubs off on teammates. He beat out Roethlisberger, DeAngelo Williams, and Cam Heyward for the award.
It’s Brown’s third MVP win, taking home the honor in 2011 and 2013. Le’Veon Bell won the award last year.
In his career, he has 513 receptions, 6906 yards, and 37 touchdowns. By early next season, Brown will move into third place in Steelers’ all-time receptions, and could pass John Stallworth for second in receiving yards.
