Vander Esch in contention for rookie award

With another nine tackles making his regular season total 140 – third most in the NFL – Salmon River alum Leighton Vander Esch is in the mix for the defensive rookie of the year award. It’s one of the most prestigious NFL awards, which are determined by vote of 50 Associated Press sportswriters who cover the NFL regularly. Dallas beat New York 36-35 last weekend, and the Cowboys are set to play Seattle at 5:15 p.m. Jan. 5 to be televised on FOX.
