The 32 player nominees for the fourth annual ART ROONEY SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD have been finalized, the NFL announced today. Each NFL team nominated one of its players for the award, which recognizes players around the league who exemplify outstanding sportsmanship on the field.

The award was created in 2014 in honor of the late founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pro Football Hall of Famer ART ROONEY, SR.

The winner of the NFL Sportsmanship Award is determined by a vote of current NFL players. A panel of former players from the NFL Legends Community will select eight finalists (four in the AFC and four in the NFC) from the 32 nominees. The panel is comprised of WARRICK DUNN, CURTIS MARTIN, KARL MECKLENBURG and LEONARD WHEELER.

The eight finalists will be listed on the Pro Bowl...

  • This award should not go to any other player than Joe. Such a class act and a great example for his teammates.

  • Hahhh, yea i second what Kazmir Brown wrote, I've been watching him specifically for a while now since he's like the only veteran player on our offense, lately he's been missing many blocks, slow at pulling and run up field to block plays, defenders coming through him and sacking our QB. he's definitely slowed down. But yea, let's give him an award for not complaining about all our losses and all our issues.

  • Offensive linemen should be the meanest dirtiest players on the field... if their not, theres a problem.
