Has a WR ever won NFL MVP?
Alan Page, a defensive tackle and the AP MVP winner in 1971, is the only defensive player ever to win any MVP Award. The great Don Hutson (the second greatest receiver in NFL history in my view) is the only receiver to win outright the MVP Award (he voted MVP twice in 1941 and 1942).
