Robison, who started his first game of the season and the 103 of his career, has been selected as the Vikings nominee for the NFL's 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.

The award was created in 2014 to honor Art Rooney Sr., the founder of the Steelers and a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"Art Rooney is an iconic figure in NFL history", said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell at the time the award was introduced. He will also win a trophy that represents the critical role that sportsmanship plays in the game and how National Football League players that demonstrate integrity and honor on the field serve as role models for players at all levels.

Obviously, it's a nice honor for Hilton, who's one of the best players on the Colts and now has 36 receptions for 725 receiving yards (which are the 4th most in the league) and 3 touchdown receptions on the season.

A committee of former players select the eight finalists, and then current players select the victor when they vote for the Pro Bowl in December. The final recipient will be revealed at the NFL Honors event held before Super Bowl LII.

Per the release from the Colts, the award is "presented each year to a player who best demonstrates the qualities of on-field sportsmanship, including fair play, respect for the game and opponents, and integrity in competition".

We'll have to keep our fingers crossed to see whether another Colt can win this award for a consecutive season, although the heavy favorites are probably well-respected veteran players (much like Gore last year) such as the New Orleans Saints Drew Brees or San Diego Chargers Antonio Gates among others.
