Excerpt From: Charlotte Observer. Written By: Jourdan Rodrigue.
On Sunday afternoon, Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was announced as one of three finalists for the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year award. Olsen is joined by New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
The award recognizes an NFL player each year for both excellence on the field and in giving back to the community.
Olsen certainly checks both boxes. He became the first tight end in NFL history to record three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons, is a three-time Pro-Bowler and supports numerous charities in Charlotte and beyond.
