Last season Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton won the NFL MVP award by being the driving force behind Carolina’s near-perfect 15-1 mark during the regular season, Newton received 48 votes with New England quarterback Tom Brady getting one and Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer getting another.

Newton probably should have been a unanimous winner as he tossed an insane 26 TD passes and just one interception over his last eight regular season games. For the 2016 season however, I’m going with Seattle’s Russell Wilson to nab this season’s MVP award as the Seattle Seahawks make a giant push to get back to the Super Bowl.

Since taking over as a rookie starter in Seattle in 2012, Wilson has won one Super Bowl title and two NFC championships when earning Pro Bowl honors three times, pro bowl Offensive MVP (2015) and the NFL Rookie of the Year award. Oh, in case you didn’t know, the Seahawks diminutive signal-caller also led the league in passer rating last season.

Wilson has thrown 106 touchdown passes and just 34 interceptions in his career while rushing for an additional 2,430 yards and a dozen scores. Maybe it’s me but I’m thinking the MVP award is next on Wilson’s list of achievements. One thing’s for sure, at a stunning +$1600, Wilson is offering some of the best value of any MVP candidate.

My top two runner-ups are Aaron Rodgers and Newton. The return of No. 1 wideout Jordy Nelson gives Rodgers his favorite target and Newton will have another chance as Carolina again contends for a Super Bowl berth.

The Pick: Russell Wilson
