Vizio Awards NFL's Wilson
Vizio said this week that Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been named 2012’s Vizio Top Value Performer. Wilson, who had a successful rookie season last year, was honored by fans who choose Wilson as the player who “provided his team with the greatest value this past season.”
Wilson, a third-round draft pick out of Wisconsin, earned a base salary of $390,000, but led his team to the second round of the playoffs.
“It’s an honor to win this great award, and I’d like to thank the fans for voting me as the VIZIO Top Value Performer,” Wilson said in a statement by Vizio. “All the finalists had fantastic seasons and were certainly deserving of this this award, but I’m happy to be able to share this with my teammates and all the fans that support our team.”
ESPN reporter Adam Schefter helped Vizio pick the finalists, which were voted on by fans. The Giants’ Victor Cruz won the award last year.
