Rodgers, Boldin, Davis finalists for NFL's Man of Year

NEW YORK (AP) Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, San Francisco wide receiver Anquan Boldin and Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis have been selected as finalists for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award.

The winner will be announced during the NFL Honors awards special in Arizona on Jan. 31, the night before the Super Bowl.

The award, named after the late Hall of Fame running back, recognizes a player's off-field community service as well as his playing excellence. The winner will receive a $50,000 donation in his name to a charity of his choice from the NFL Foundation and Nationwide. The other finalists will receive $10,000 donations in their names.

The finalists were chosen from among the 32 team nominees, all of whom receive a $5,000 donation to their charities.
