NFL Man of the Year Award

Each season, the Packers nominate a player for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award. The award is the only one in the league that recognizes a player’s off-the-field community service as well as his on-the-field performance. The Packers nominee for 2014 was quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was then selected as one of three finalists by the NFL. Aaron was recognized for the positive impact he makes through his strong support of the MACC Fund and various other nonprofit organizations.
