Lorenzo Alexander nominated for Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award

For the Vikings, it was defensive end Brian Robison.

It wasn't personal. It was just business, an 11-year veteran limiting a scramble to a 3-yard gain early in the third quarter, with a finishing touch of sportsmanship. He quickly halted his rush angle when he saw Cousins trying to escape a blitz by Anthony Barr.

Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas is Cleveland's 2017 nominee for the NFL's Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award for the second straight season.

A real competitor on the field, Carr has never been one to talk trash about his foes and is one of the more likable players in the National Football League while having a natural leadership quality that is rare at the position.

The award, which was created in honor of late founding Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney Sr.

Robison has been with the Vikings since being drafted in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft.

Each team has a representative that is nominated for the award and running back Frank Gore, who represented the Colts in 2016, was the victor last season.

The Vikings nominated Chad Greenway in 2014 and 2015 and Terence Newman in 2016.

The victor is selected by the NFL players and the NFL Players Association and will be eligible to receive a $25,000 donation to the charity of the recipient of the award's choice, as for provided by the NFL Foundation.
