Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin has been selected as Washington’s 2023 nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year, which is given annually to the player who not only excels on the field but also positively impacts the community.
The fifth-year wide receiver started the Terry McLaurin Foundation after entering the NFL in 2019 and has maintained a presence in the local community throughout his time in Washington. McLaurin won the 2022 NFLPA Community MVP Award for Week 2 for his work in giving back to the local community.
“The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award is the league’s most prestigious honor given annually to the player who best represents the greatness and compassion of Walter Payton on and off the field,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “These 32 outstanding men are making a valuable difference in their communities every day and we are proud to celebrate their special gifts and humanitarianism.”

Congratulations to Terry McLaurin.
