Player Initiatives
The prestigious Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award historically recognizes an NFL player for his excellence on and off the field. The award was established in 1970 and renamed in 1999 after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back, Walter Payton. Each year, the Denver Broncos are proud to nominate one player who has had a significant, positive impact on his community.

Quarterback John Elway is the only Broncos player to win the national award (1992).

2016 Denver Broncos Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year: TE Virgil Green

The Denver Broncos named TE Virgil Green the team's 2016 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award recipient for his outstanding leadership both on the field and in the community.

Green has proven to be one of the most consistent leaders for the Broncos' Be A Champion in the Community platform throughout his six years with the team. Since being selected by the Broncos in the 2011 NFL Draft, Green has worked with the Mile High United Way in various capacities, including volunteering as a partner for the Power Lunch program to improve early childhood literacy and help kids develop a love for reading. In 2016, Green adopted a Columbian elementary school classroom and visited every Tuesday to read with the students.

Green also has been integral to the team's PLAY 60 work and has not missed a Hometown Huddle event since becoming a Bronco. In 2016, Green was named the Western Dairy Fuel Up to PLAY 60 player representative, a role in which he encourages students and schools to become healthier through nutrition and physical activity.

Green was named a Broncos Community Ambassador in 2015 after being chosen as a Denver Broncos Community Champion Award winner in 2014.
