The Jets awarded their team MVP to linebacker C.J. Mosley in a vote conducted by his teammates. Mosley returned in 2021 after a near two-year absence and proved his value to the organization on and off the field.
The Jets' defensive captain was unanimously praised by his teammates as he became the first Jets linebacker to win the award since David Harris in 2010.
Elsewhere, Folorunso Fatukasi was named the Dennis Byrd/Most Inspirational Player, Ashtyn Davis received the Ed Block Courage/Most Courageous Player award, Quinnen Williams won both the Marty Lyons/Community Service and the Kyle Clifton/"Good Guy" award, and Elijah Moore earned the Bill Hampton/"Rookie Who Acts Like a Pro" honor.
As an added bonus, Mosley was also named the Jets' Gerald Eskenazi Media Good Guy Award as voted on by the team's beat reporters.
C.J. Mosley and others were honored by the NY Jets on Wednesday
It was a busy day for Mosley who received top honors from both the Jets and the media, but it was an equally busy day for Williams who took home two awards of his own becoming just the third Jets player in the last dozen years to receive two team honors in the same year.
Williams earned the Community Service award which should come as no surprise after he was named the team's Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee for his work with Goryeb Children's Hospital and the oncology wing at Morristown Medical Center.
He also took home the Kyle Clifton/"Good Guy" award named after the Jets' longtime linebacker. Josh McCown and Ryan Fitzpatrick are the only other Jets in the last dozen years to take home multiple awards in the same season.
Davis received the Most Courageous award after he worked hard to rehab from a late-2020 foot injury that kept him sidelined for the entire offseason and the beginning of the 2021 season.
Finally, Moore received the highest honor for a Jets rookie being praised by his teammates for his professionalism on and off the field.
With the Jets' season coming to an end this Sunday, it's nice to see the team take a moment to reflect and give these players their rightful due.
