All 32 teams selected their man of the year, qualifying them as finalists for the honor presented at Super Bowl XLIX at the NFL Honors show on Jan. 31.
Players are chosen based on their commitment to philanthropy and community impact. Three nominees will be selected as finalists for the award, named for the legendary Bears running back who died in 1999.
Finalists will be announced next month.
The 32 team nominees receive a $1,000 donation from the NFL Foundation to the charity of their choice. The three finalists will receive an additional $5,000 donation, and the
winner will receive an additional $20,000 donation in his name.
"We admire and support the important work that these players and so many other NFL players are doing to serve their communities," commissioner Roger Goodell said. "The NFL is filled with outstanding young men who help schools, shelters, and countless other organizations and good causes. We thank our players for recognizing the positive impact they can have in the lives of their fellow citizens and seizing that opportunity to make difference."
