New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is a finalist for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award for the second straight year.
Manning joins Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen as the other two finalists. The winner will be announced Saturday, Feb. 4.
"Larry, Eli and Greg are not only top-tier athletes, but also men of great character, integrity and generosity of spirit," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a press release. "Their passion for community and helping others is having a positive impact on countless individuals and communities, and it's something we should all celebrate."
Manning has raised more than $25 million as chair of the New York March for Babies over the past seven years, and has also worked with "Tackle Kids' Cancer" with Hackensack University Medical Center.
Manning was a finalist last year, ultimately losing out to then-San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
