After another year full of community service, Mark Ingram was named the New Orleans Saints' nominee for the 2018 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year.

Each NFL team nominates one player for the prestigious award. The winner will be announced at NFL Honors on Feb. 2, the night before the Super Bowl.

Unlike previous years when the league narrowed the award from 32 semifinalists to three finalists, all 32 nominees are being recognized this year at the NFL Honors ceremony.

The winner will receive a $250,000 donation in his name to expand Character Playbook, the NFL and United Way’s digital character education program, as well as another donation of $250,000 to a charity of his choice.

The other 31 nominees will receive a $50,000 donation in their name to Character Playbook, as well as a donation of up to $50,000 to a charity of their choice.



Ingram, who served a four-game suspension this year for performance-enhancing drugs, will hope to become the second Saints player to win the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award, which has existed since 1970. It was previously the NFL Man of the Year award, but the league added Payton’s name in 1999. Saints quarterback Drew Brees won the award in 2006.

Kind of unrelated, but Mark only needs 267 yards to become the Saints all-time leading rusher. He’ll have to average 66.75 yards over these last four games.

It just shows that the Saints and the league both knew that the suspension was not based upon anything nefarious.
