Arizona Cardinals left tackle D.J. Humphries has been honored by the local chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America. The team announced Wednesday he received the Steve Schoenfeld Good Guy Award for his cooperation and insight in dealing with the media.

The local chapter of the PFWA honors two Cardinals players each year. One is the team MVP, which receiver DeAndre Hopkins received. The other is the good guy award.

Humphries has started every game this season at left tackle, anchoring the offensive line for the league’s No. 2 offense. He has helped the Cardinals rank third in the league in rushing (145.9 ypg) and be tied for second with 22 rushing touchdowns. Humphries was recognized for being available, insightful and professional while communicating with reporters via Zoom this season.

The good guy award is named after another former Arizona Republic writer. Schoenfeld covered the Cardinals and the NFL for the Republic from 1988 to 2000. A former national president of the PFWA, Schoenfeld was killed by hit-and-run driver in October of 2000.

Humphries has been great to speak to in virtual press conference all season. He is funny and insightful. It has been fun to see him progress as a player and leader in his six seasons with the team.
