The Buffalo Bills have nominated linebacker Lorenzo Alexander for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.

This is the second year Alexander's teammates, family and members of the community nominated him for the prestigious award. 

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier told that the veteran defensive player is, "a tremendous leader and a guy that we count on a great deal to make a difference for our football team, both on and off the field.”

Alexander not only makes a difference in the locker room but in the community as well.
