Quarterbacks DREW BREES of the New Orleans Saints, TOM BRADY of the New England Patriots and AARON RODGERS of the Green Bay Packers are the finalists for the Air NFL Player of the Year honors, the NFL announced today.

Fans can vote for one player in each category on NFL.com until Friday, January 27 at 9 pm ET to determine the Air NFL Player of the Year.

The Air NFL Player of the Year will be announced on Wednesday, February 1 at a press conference during the week of Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.

A closer look at the Air NFL Player of the Year finalists:

  • Green Bay’s AARON RODGERS completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 4,643 yards and 45 touchdowns. He set the NFL record for passer rating in a season, at 122.5, and is the first quarterback in NFL history to begin a season with 12 straight weeks with a passer rating of 110 or higher. Rodgers led the Packers to a 15-1 record in the regular season, the best mark in the league, and was named the NFC’s starting quarterback for the 2012 Pro Bowl. His 9.25 yards per attempt were the highest in the NFL, and his passing touchdowns and completion percentage ranked second in the league. Rodgers was nominated eight times for FedEx Air Player of the Week honors, winning six times. Rodgers was named 2010 FedEx Air Player of the Year.
  • New England’s TOM BRADY threw for 5,235 yards and 39 touchdowns in 2011 as he led the Patriots to a 13-3 record and the top seed in the AFC playoffs. His passing yardage total is the second highest in NFL history. Brady is the first quarterback in NFL history to amass three seasons with at least 36 touchdown passes. Brady’s 8.57 yards per attempt average was second in the NFL in 2011, his 105.6 passer rating placed him third and his completion percentage and touchdown passes both ranked fourth. His Week 1 and Week 2 performances marked the first time in NFL history that a quarterback passed for 400 yards in a game after throwing for 500 yards in his previous outing. The AFC starting quarterback in the 2012 Pro Bowl, Brady was nominated for FedEx Air Player of the Week four times, winning once.
  • New Orleans’ DREW BREES set the single-season record for most passing yards with 5,476, eclipsing DAN MARINO’s record of 5,084 yards set in 1984.
