Texans running back Arian Foster finished third in voting for The Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year award, which went Tuesday to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady won the award with 21 of 50 votes from a nationwide panel of NFL media members. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was second with 11 votes. Foster had seven votes, the most by any non-quarterback, after leading the league in rushing yards (1,616), yards from scrimmage (2,220), rushing touchdowns (16) and total touchdowns (18) this season.
Also receiving votes were San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers (5), Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White (2), Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (2) and Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson (2).
Foster was named AP first-team All-Pro after the season and started for the AFC in the 2011 Pro Bowl.
