Tyrann Mathieu Man of the Year nominee: Grandmother inspires him to give back to KC and NOLA

Considered the league's most prestigious honor, the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award presented by Nationwide recognizes NFL players who have exhibited excellence on-the-field, and whose passion to impact lives extends beyond the game. This year's nominee for the Kansas City Chiefs is three-time All Pro safety Tyrann Mathieu. His foundation supports financially disadvantaged youth in Kansas City and his hometown of New Orleans - inspired by a special person who made an enduring impact on his life.
