So it’s no surprise the ex-Fresno State star is his team’s nominee for the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award for the second straight year.
The NFL says the award recognizes players around the league who exemplify outstanding sportsmanship on the field, including fair play, respect for the game and opponents, and integrity in competition.
The award was created in 2014 in honor of the late founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Rooney Sr.
Carr, a two-time Pro Bowler, was nominated for the award in 2016. Past winners are Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals in 2014, Charles Woodson of the Raiders in 2015 and Frank Gore of the Indianapolis Colts last season.
After games, Carr always leads a group prayer at the 50-yard line and shares pleasantries with opposing teams afterward.
The eight finalists will be announced when players vote on Dec. 15. The award will be presented Feb. 3 at the NFL Honors show the night before the Super Bowl.
The winner will earn a $25,000 donation to a charity of his choice.
