Tom Brady, of course, repeated at No. 1 in the NFL Network’s Top 100 players of 2018 after winning another MVP award last season. He was the easy choice.
The only surprise in the top 10, which was revealed Monday night Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey
, was Aaron Rodgers at No. 10, the fourth quarterback on the list. It surely had to do with his missing nine games last season, but still . . . .
Carson Wentz missed six games, including the postseason, and still ranked third overall.
The Rams and Steelers were the only teams with two players ranked in the top 10. Pittsburgh placed Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell in the top five.
