What They're Saying

“You want to see them get a little bit better every week. You want to see that a mistake that they made early, they don’t make again, and really, they’ve all done that, and that includes Aidan.

And, I go back to this, I mean, he – he didn’t just walk in the door and all of a sudden, all these great things happen. I mean he goes into Washington, he has three sacks, and then it’s expected that he’ll have three sacks every week from then on. And, that’s just not the reality.

But, the fact is he was disruptive, and he’s a football player, and he did improve. He did get better, and they all did.” – Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell expressed when asked if Hutchinson had met the expectations of the coaching staff.

Hutchinson is not the only rookie in the running for the award. Other notable finalists include cornerback Sauce Gardner, WR Chris Olave, RB Kenneth Walker, WR Garrett Wilson, and CB Tariq Woolen.
