of a distinct or particular kind of character
synonym: Lamar Jackson
It’s hard to grasp how talented Ravens QB Lamar Jackson is. He’s unique. He’s something this league has never witnessed before. You can point to Michael Vick and other dual-threat talents but the comparisons fall short. One way to prove this is through his most recent accolade: FedEx Ground Player of the Week.
“For 17 years, FedEx has recognized the NFL quarterbacks and running backs delivering the best performances for their fans and teammates each week.”
This award has been around for 17 years and not once has a quarterback been nominated for Ground Player of the Week. Not Vick, Russell Wilson, Robert Griffin III, Cam Newton or any other dual threat quarterback. Not until Lamar Jackson, from last week.

But it didn’t end with Lamar just earning the nomination.
Now, Lamar Jackson is the first and only quarterback to win the FedEx Ground Player of the Week. He’s the first to ever win both awards. He’s the first player to ever win both awards in a single season.
Lamar Jackson is special. He’s of a distinct or particular kind of character.
