Full breakdown of re-vote

Posted by Chris Brown on May 13, 2010 – 8:50 am

Here’s the full breakdown of  the re-vote for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Looking at the re-vote breakdown provided by the Associated Press (see below) I was surprised at how many voters changed their vote where Brian Cushing was not part of the equation.

The Washington DC writer changed from Byrd to Orakpo (home team call there).

The real head scratcher was the Pittsburgh beat writer who changed from Byrd to Cushing. What the heck is that?

Of those that voted for Cushing, nine changed their vote to Byrd, with eight changing their vote to Clay Matthews.

There were also a few abstentions.
