The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker has been nominated for the NFL's highest ESPY award.

PITTSBURGH -- After winning Defensive Player of the Year, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker cemented himself as one of the league's top peformers. So much so, that he's been nominated for the NFL's Best Player at the 2022 ESPYS.
