The subsequent ballot in 2011 showed the first sub-20% total of 115 votes (%), and McGwire's total votes continued to decline (112 votes (%) in 2012 , 96 votes (%) in 2013 , 63 votes (%) in 2014 , and 55 votes (%) in 2015 ) until he was finally eliminated after receiving only 54 votes (%) in 2016 . 
5. Antonio Brown , Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver: Brown has Gary Kubiak's vote after torching Broncos Pro Bowl cornerback Chris Harris in a Week 15 shootout, but no wide receiver has won the award dating back to 1957. While Brown is the best route runner on the planet and the most productive wideout of the past three years, he has two more factors working against him: He failed to reach 50 yards in three consecutive games with Ben Roethlisberger sidelined, and the Steelers lost a must-win game versus the injury-ravaged Ravens in Week 16.
