Mark Moseley On Being the Only Special Teams Player to Win NFL MVP
Former NFL kicker and NFL MVP Mark Moseley joined Jeff Thurn on Thursday's edition of Overtime.
Mosely was a kicker in the NFL for 16 years. He played for the Eagles, Oilers, and Redskins.
Moseley is the only special teams player to be named MVP in the history of the NFL. He discusses how shocking it is that no other special teams player has won the award:
"It is shocking with special teams being as important as they are today. I think this year's Redskins, when you don't play special teams, it's a good example of what happens. But for me being the MVP in 1982 was a huge honor and very unexpected."
Moseley's reaction to being named MVP:
"I was. Back then it wasn't as big as it is now. I don't even have a trophy or anything. I have nothing that says I'm MVP, but to get that phone call from the NFL office, and them telling me I was nominated was a shock enough. Later on when they called me and told me I was a winner, it was really shocking. The guys I beat out, were guys like Dan Fouts, Marcus Allen, and those were guys I beat out for and I thought you got to be kidding me. I thought first it was joke, they were playing around, but it was amazing."
