* '''Odell Beckham Jr.''', New York Giants wide receiver (2016 cover): Determined by tournament, Beckham defeated New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on May 13, 2015 to become the second Rookie of the Year winner to appear on the cover. Aside from his one-handed touchdown grab against the Cowboys in 2014, Beckham got attention again in 2015 when he got into a fight with Panthers cornerback Josh Norman throughout the entire game between the Giants and the then-undefeated Panthers, culminated with Beckham launching head first into Norman. As a result of his fight with Norman, Beckham was suspended for the next game against the Vikings, which they lost. Additionally, the Giants fell to 6-10 that year, and Giants head coach Tom Coughlin announced his resignation on January 4, 2016, when the Giants missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
