Jordan Addison wins NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

The Minnesota Vikings found another great wide receiver in the early 20’s of the NFL draft in Jordan Addison. After an excellent month of October, Addison won NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month.

What makes this really impressive is that Addison started the month with a dud of a game where he caught no passes against the Carolina Panthers. He followed it up by dominating his competition. He caught 23 passes for 297 yards and five touchdowns.

It wasn’t just his stats that were great, Addison dominated opposing cornerbacks. He was attacking them in every way, including deep where post routes have been a favorite of the Vikings so far this season.

This is Addison’s first NFL Rookie of the Month award and he also became the fifth Vikings player to win the award and the sixth overall recipent.
