Bruins fall to Preds in shootout to open trip
By: DJ Bean

Jets owner endorses firing GM on Twitter?

McCourty Patriots' Man of the Year nominee

FOXBORO — Devin McCourty is considered one of the hardest working and generous people inside the Patriots locker room. Now, that generosity and leadership on and off the field has been recognized by the team.

On Tuesday, the Patriots announced that the fifth-year defensive back is their nominee for the annual NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, presented by Nationwide.

All 32 teams nominate players for the league-wide annual distinction given to a player who shows commitment to volunteer work and philanthropy in their community.
