49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin, Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers are the three finalists for the NFL’s 2015 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, the league announced Sunday night.

The Man of the Year Award recognizes a player’s excellence on the field and in community endeavors.

Davis was a finalist for the 2014 Man of the Year Award, which went to Bears cornerback Charles Tillman.

The Man of the Year winner will be announced on the NFL Honors program, which airs on NBC on Saturday, January 31 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern.

  1. And the winner is, Russell Wilson. Thomas Davis, Carolina’s best defender can’t win anything he deserves as long as Luke gets the credit.

  2. QB Russell Wilson CLEARLY deserves this award with all the good he does at the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

  3. Anquan Boldin? Is this a joke? This award loses all credibility if a dirty oaf like Boldin is a finalist. The dude is the king of late cheapshots and shoving people’s facemasks after the whistle. Hell, this classless scum literally openly blamed the refs for the Niners losses after they get destroyed by Drew Stanton. Guess what Anquan, your team is just terrible and subsequently proved it the rest of the season?

  4. Better go to TD! He always gets snubbed though… so I’m sure the NFL screws it up and gives it to a dirty player like Boldin. Don’t really have faith in the NFL to do many things that make sense.

  5. muslimponder is a sad sad human being. never seen so much negativity from one person. Funny that no one on seattle was finalist. The nerve for you to label Bolden undeserving when your entire defense are the biggest bullies and poor sports i have ever seen

  6. One of the qualifications for this honor is:
    Must have been humiliated by the Seahawks.
    Keep the ‘award’, we’ll take the ring.

  7. nfliferfan22 No Seahawks are on the list because they’re going to the Super Bowl and the awards event is going on the night before on the east coast. Good thing the players you cheer for won’t have any problem being on the east coast Feb 1st.

  8. You do know this award has absolutely nothing to do with the Superbowl or who’s playing in it right? Oh wait 2012’s don’t know much about the actual game or league. Silly me

  9. Congrats Aaron, you do so much good for our community. I am proud to be a fan. Win or lose you do the city of Green Bay and the state of Wisconsin proud. I am glad you are our QB, there is more to life than football. Hope you get the recognition you so richly deserve for all you to to help others!

  10. How in the hell can Bolden be considered. Have they not watch his cheap shots on the field all year

  11. Seattle Seahawks= The most classless Team to ever win a Title game! If Seattle Seahawks= Ring, you can keep it!!! Classless, ugly, people! Lynch, go to jail already?! Please, we all know that’s where you’re be heading after football!

  12. After TD got snubbed by the Pro Bowl, it would be nice to see him win this award. He’s a fixture in the Charlotte community, an inspiration the way he has come all the way back from 3 ACL tears to being an elite player, and total class all the way around. #KeepPounding

  13. Wins are definitely at the top of my “wish list” for my local Charlotte sports franchises, but knowing what type of people we have on the Panthers and Hornets roster, it makes me incredibly proud to be a Fan. Many of these guys do so much to better this community and more importantly they do it outside of the media’s attention. Thomas Davis epitomizes this.
