Joe Flacco Nominated for Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award

Robison, who started his first game of the season and the 103 of his career, has been selected as the Vikings nominee for the NFL's 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.

Each NFL team nominated one player - Heyward is the Pittsburgh Steelers' selection - for the award created in 2014 to honor the late founding owner of the Steelers.

Four finalists from the NFC and AFC will be selected by the NFL Legends Community, a panel of former players, and placed on the Pro Bowl ballot for voting on December 15.

Warrick Dunn, Curtis Martin, Karl Mecklenburg and Leonard Wheeler are on the panel that will determine finalists before December 15 when players also vote for the Pro Bowl. The 8 finalists will then be voted on this year's Pro Bowl ballot by the players, where each team's players will select a consensus vote for the victor (and a team can not vote for its own player). Indianapolis Colts running back Frank Gore, former Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald have won the award.

The eventual recipient of the award will also be able to donate $25,000 to a charity of their choice. The award recognizes players across the league who exemplify the qualities of outstanding sportsmanship on field - this includes fair play, respect for the game and opponents, and integrity in competition.
