New, comments

Atkins has been nominated for the second year in a row.

New York Giants v Cincinnati Bengals

Geno Atkins has been recognized for his work on the field, and is now being recognized for his work off the field.

The NFLPA has nominated Atkins for the Alan Page Community Award for the second year in a row. Other who were nominated include Brandon Carr, Brandon Copeland, Demario Davis, and Bobby Wagner.

Atkins was nominated for the award last year, but lost out to his former teammate and current Los Angeles Ram Andrew Whitworth.

The defensive tackle has been such a contribution to the Cincinnati community over the years, especially during the Christmas season with his “Atkins week of giving.”

The winner of the award will be voted by their peers, and will be announced during the Super Bowl.
