Currently several organizations give out NFL Defensive Player Awards that are listed in the "NFL Record and Fact Book" and "Total Football II: The Official Encyclopedia of the National Football League". The Associated Press has been giving the award since 1972. Pro Football Writers of America/Pro Football Weekly since 1970. The Sporting News has only announced winners for the last two seasons. Previously, the Newspaper Enterprise Association was the originator of the award in 1966, however it became defunct after 1997. Also going defunct was the United Press International AFC-NFC Defensive Player of the Year Awards that began in 1970.
The AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award is given by the Associated Press to the league's most outstanding defensive player at the end of every NFL season since 1971. Multiple-award winners include Lawrence Taylor, who won it three times, and Joe Greene, Mike Singletary, Bruce Smith, Reggie White, Ray Lewis, and J. J. Watt who each won it twice. Lawrence Taylor is the only player to win the award as a rookie (1981), and James Harrison is the only one to win it as an undrafted free agent (2008). Most recently, in 2012 and 2013, two second year players won this award: J. J. Watt and Luke Kuechly of the Houston Texans and Carolina Panthers.
