After Texans linebacker Brian Cushing last week was suspended for violating the NFL's steroid policy, the Associated Press announced Monday it would hold a "revote" for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award. Cushing, who won the award with 39 of 50 votes back in January, will still be eligible.

SI.com writers Peter King and Don Banks are among the 50 AP voters and shared their contrasting viewpoints on SI.com.

Here's an excerpt from King:

I agree with the AP’s decision to keep Cushing in contention for the award. It’s up to the 50 voters to decide -- just the way it should be. If a majority feel he should be the defensive rookie of the year, then so be it. But I won’t be one of his supporters.

Here's an excerpt from Banks:

I have one of the votes that has to be re-cast by noon on Wednesday, and unless something dramatic alters the facts as I know them, I plan on voting Cushing the league’s defensive rookie of the Year, just as I did in January.

What are your thoughts? Should the AP have gone forward with a revote? Does Cushing still deserve the award? Let us know in the comments below.

Banks is an idiot, I don't care if it were one of my hometown Detroit Lions, if they were a roid head they should be out of the running....
