Meanwhile, Falcons owner Arthur Blank , the compensation committee's chairman, doesn't appear to be taking Jones' advice. Goodell has 18 months left on his current term and a lot to prove in the NFL's troubled 2017 landscape.

Of course, last year's Colts nominee, running back Frank Gore, actually won the award as the 2016 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award victor. From the list, each team's players will submit a consensus vote of their choice for the victor. Those eight will be listed on the Pro Bowl ballot when players vote December 15 (a team can not vote for its own player), and the victor will be announced during the NFL Honors show February 3, the eve of Super Bowl LII.

The victor receives a $25,000 donation from the NFL Foundation to a charity of his choice.
