Survey/respected player: Seahawks
By Terry Blount
RENTON, Wash. -- Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was a top choice for most respected player in the NFL among the Seattle voters, but not by much.
Manning received four of the 10 votes from the Seahawks players. New England quarterback Tom Brady received three votes, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers got two and Houston defensive lineman J.J. Watt grabbed one.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who has led the team to the playoffs in each of his first two seasons, also received five votes in the survey.
Manning was an easy winner overall in the ESPN.com NFL Nation Confidential survey, receiving 86 votes compared to 24 for Brady, who finished second.
