    and who lead the NFL in Pro Bowl votes – are both in the running for the league's Most Valuable Player Award, and subsequently Rookie of the Year and . is in the running for , and now we know of another Cowboy who could net a prize.

    The  Award is presented to the NFL player that personifies excellence on the field in parallel with great work and off-the-field generosity. Each team has a nominee, and this year the Dallas Cowboys' Walter Payton Man of the Year Award nominee is .

    It is an illustrious honor simply to be nominated for this prestigious recognition. The legend of Pro Football Hall of Famer Walter Payton has lived on well beyond his life, and this award exemplifies the legacy that he created.

    In the of the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, it dates back to the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, only three members of the Dallas Cowboys have won it. Given the prestige of the award it should come as no shock to who they are. The club Sean Lee is hoping to join includes (1978), (1997), and (2012). This is a list of two Pro Football Hall of Famers and one soon-to-be.

    If Sean Lee were to walk away with the award the Cowboys would be tied for the second-most “wins” of it by an NFL Franchise. Fittingly the Bears have the most with five (the also have five for what it's worth), and both the and have had four of their members win it.
