Perennial phenom Antonio Brown was nominated for an ESPY yesterday, specifically for Best NFL Player. He received the nod alongside Patriots QB Tom Brady, Texans DE J.J. Watt, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, and Eagles RB Demarco Murray.

Brown tweeted the good news earlier today:

With an incredible 5,259 career receiving yards in his five seasons with the NFL, Antonio Brown is at the peak of his game. Last season alone he tallied 129 receptions for 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns-- all career highs for the former sixth-round pick out of Central Michigan. These stats were not only career highs, they were good enough to lead the NFL in receptions and receiving yards in 2014. He was also the first NFL player to rack up at least five catches and 50 receiving yards in 32 consecutive games.

Will AB beat out Brady, Watt, Rodgers, and Murray? Fan votes determine the outcome.
