San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin won the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, given out each year honoring an NFL player's volunteer and charity work, as well as his excellence on the field.

Other finalists included New York Giants QB Eli Manning and New Orleans Saints TE Ben Watson.


This is the second year in a row that Boldin was a finalist for the award. Every NFL team nominates a player from their roster for the award and each nominee gets a $5,000 donation to their charity of choice with the winner getting a $50,000 donation.

Last year's winner was Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis.

From NFL.com:

Boldin established the Anquan Boldin (Q81) Foundation in 2004 with the mission to expand the educational and life opportunities of underprivileged children, and has since has held charitable events in Phoenix, Baltimore, South Florida and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Earlier on Saturday, Boldin was the recipient of the Leigh Steinberg Humanitarian Award.

Each week, I present the Golden Nugget Award to a San Francisco 49ers player who had an outstanding game or managed to defy the odds. Week 4's award goes to third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel. The other nominees for this week's award were quarterback Trey Lance for coming off the bench and displaying why the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick to draft him, defensive ends Dee Ford and Nick Bosa for showing dominance along the defensive line, and running back Trey Sermon for his 19 carries for 89 rushing yards against the Seattle Seahawks. Samuel, whose real name is Tyshun, received the nickname Deebo, the name of the notorious bully from the movie "Friday," from his father Galen, because he always took things away from people as a toddler. The 49ers lost

Week 5's Golden Nugget Award winner goes to defensive tack D.J. Jones. The other nominees for this week's award are quarterback Trey Lance for his first NFL start, defensive end Nick Bosa, linebacker Fred Warner for his dominance on defense, and punter Mitch Wishnowsky for his 48.5 punt average in the loss against the Arizona Cardinals, dropping the San Francisco 49ers to 2-3. The former Ole Miss Rebel did not have a dominant performance in the game but his sack on Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray in the first quarter had Twitter erupted. OhMyGoodness DJ

The 49ers need an onside kick to have a chance to tie.

49ers QB Trey Lance assesses his first extended NFL regular season action as 'good and bad'

The results were mixed for 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance after being unexpectedly called upon to play the entire second half during a 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Lance was inserted into the game to start the second half after it became apparent during halftime that starter Jimmy Garoppolo wouldn't be able to take the field due to an assumed calf injury he sustained early in the game. Lance finished the game with 157 yards and two touchdowns on 9-of-18 passing while rushing for 41 yards on seven carries, but was unable to dig the 49ers out of the hole they found themselves in after the Seahawks scored two quick touchdowns early in the second half. The appearance marked the first extended action of the regular season for Lance, who had
