Matthew Stafford Returns to NFL's Top 100 List

Posted June 07, 2017

A year later, and the NFL Network's Top 100 Players list is still a mess, according to Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt didn't agree with his place on the list, quote tweeting the NFL Network's tweet about where he landed and questioning why he was at 35.

Those two join receiver Doug Baldwin and defensive ends Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett on the list, giving the Seahawks five players and counting in this year's Top 100. Some comments were good, while others thought it was more like a humble brag. "Uhh, hey JJ. Sweet subtle brag about only playing 3 games and still being on the top 100 list", Twitter user Zack Skulte wrote.

National Football League players vote on the Top 100. Nobody's going to write about me, though.

Watt aggravated a back injury in late September, cutting his season short. This year, coming off a season in which he missed 13 games and finished with just 1.5 sacks, he dropped 32 spots. Well, the 2017 version of the list has been slowly revealed on the NFL Network since May 1st, and on Monday night we learned that Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford comes in at No. 31 on this year's list.
