Running Back Spencer Ware Chosen By Fans As The 2016 VIZIO Top Value Performer
VIZIO, Inc. today announced Kansas City’s Spencer Ware as the winner of the 2016 VIZIO Top Value Performer (TVP) award. Ware has spent the last two weeks promoting his candidacy by engaging his followers on social media and participating in a series of broadcast radio interviews, where he encouraged fans to show their support by voting. Now in its tenth year, the VIZIO Top Value Performer award is presented to the professional football player whose on-field performance most exceeds expectations and the value of their current contract, as voted on by the fans. In one of the most competitive votes in the award’s history, Ware beat out a collection of stellar players including Miami’s Jay Ajayi, San Diego’s Tyrell Williams, Oakland’s Latavius Murray, and New Orleans’s Michael Thomas, to secure the award.
After being thrust into a starting role early in the season, Ware was quick to impress and has since developed into one of the league’s most versatile players. Ware excelled as both a rushing and receiving threat, becoming one of the focal points of Kansas City’s offense, delivering more than 1,300 total yards on the season. The combination of impressive stats at one of the game’s most important positions and Ware’s base salary of $600,000 made him a compelling TVP candidate for fan voters.
“It is an honor to be chosen as this year’s VIZIO Top Value Performer, and it means so much to be recognized by the fans for all of this season’s hard work,” said Ware. “I was in such great company with the other nominees who had amazing performances every Sunday, and for me to be selected as the winner from that group of men is truly humbling.”
