By Pat Yasinskas
We told you that Tampa Bay running back LeGarrette Blount had won the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Month award for December. Now, we’ve got a couple of other awards going to NFC South Players.
Atlanta return man Eric Weems was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month for December. Weems averaged 30.9 yards per kickoff return in December and also returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns. He was named to the NFC Pro Bowl team for the first time in his career.
Also, Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman was named the FedEx Air Player of the Week for the second straight week.
