2022 Walter Payton Man of the Year

DERRICK HENRY | WALTER PAYTON MAN OF THE YEAR

Derrick Henry continues to make a name for himself on the football field.

Off the field, the Titans running back continues to build a giant legacy as well.

On Tuesday, Henry was announced as the team's nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award for the second year in a row.

Considered one of the league's most prestigious honors, the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award recognizes an NFL player for outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field.

"It's an honor for me. This award, what it stands for, the morals and principles that Walter Payton stood for, I think that every athlete should try to strive for them each and every day. He did amazing things on the field, but off the field as well. We can just hope to be the man that he was one day. I'm very glad to represent this organization for the second time. It's an honor to be nominated for this award. Hopefully I can continue to do great things and do the things that this award represents."
