If Ravens center Matt Birk has decided to retire, he hasn’t announced it yet. Birk has, however, decided to go zip-lining with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Birk, a candidate for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award, is in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl and hanging out with The Commish. This photo is courtesy of the NFL.
Birk, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers and Bears cornerback Charles Tillman are among the finalists for the award that recognizes a player's off-the-field community service as well as his playing excellence.
The award will be announced Saturday evening during a two-hour "NFL Honors" special that will air nationally on NBC at 9 p.m.
