The three finalists for the award were announced at halftime of the AFC Championship game and Ravens TE Benjamin Watson, Texans DE J.J. Watt and Panthers TE Greg Olsen were named as finalists this year.

This year's victor will be revealed during the NFL Honors show the night before Super Bowl 52.

Last year, Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald split the award.

Veteran linebacker Thomas Davis became the Panthers' first Man of the Year victor after the 2014 season. He is the first tight end in National Football League history to post three consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons. Olsen's mother is a breast cancer survivor and his son was born with a congenital heart defect. The HEARTest Yard Fund unveiled a new cardiac neurodevelopmental program in 2017.

The Olsens announced in November the expansion of the HEARTest Yard with a new cardiac neurodevelopmental program - the first and most comprehensive such program in the Southeast.

Former Ravens center Matt Birk was the 2011 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. Olsen said he and his wife will match the first $100,000 through February 4 to support families at Levine Children's Hospital.

Watt, who missed most of the season with a broken leg, found a way to make an impact in Houston by raising more than $37 million to help the city rebuild from Hurricane Harvey even though his initial fundraising goal wasn't even in the million-dollar range. In partnership with IJM, the world's largest worldwide anti-slavery organization working to combat human trafficking, modern day slavery and other forms of violence against the poor, the Watsons joined the global fight to end the scourge of sex trafficking.
