Rent Computer Hardware You Need, When You Need It

INGLEWOOD — Rams receiver Cooper Kupp was named the AP Offensive Player of the Year at the 2022 NFL Honors Award Show on Thursday night.

Kupp won the receiving triple crown this season, leading the league with 145 receptions, 1,947 yards receiving and 16 touchdown catches while helping the Rams to the NFC West title.

A unanimous All-Pro, he received 35 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. Kupp finished far in front of Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor (10), Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (three) and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (2).

Working with a new quarterback, Matthew Stafford, Kupp had 14 games with at least 10 catches and no games with fewer than seven. He had 100 yards receiving in 11 of 17 regular-season games.

He’ll have the opportunity to add to his memorable season on Sunday when the Rams face the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium.

Kupp became the fourth Ram to win the award. He follows running backs Eric Dickerson (1986), Marshall Faulk (1999, 2000, 2001) and Todd Gurley (2017).

Kupp was a finalist for the AP Most Valuable Player Award but that honor was given to Rodgers, the fourth time he has won it.
