[Kansas City.com] For the second time in his career, Chiefs guard Brian Waters is one of three finalists for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.
In addition to Waters, Washington linebacker London Fletcher and Cleveland wide receiver Mike Furrey are finalists for one of the most prestigious awards in sports.
The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award is the only league award that recognizes a player’s off-the-field community service as well as his playing excellence.
The winner will be announced live on CBS before Super Bowl XLIV on Feb. 7 in Miami. Waters was also a finalist in 2008 when Miami defensive end Jason Taylor was selected for the award, which honors Payton, the former Chicago Bears running back who died in 1999.
Waters, a four-time Pro Bowl guard, created the 54 Foundation, which has helped children and families in the greater Kansas City area and in his native north Texas. He also works with the Special Olympics, sponsors an after-school program at a local YMCA, chairs the Chiefs Thanksgiving food drive and works with Habitat for Humanity.
