The honor is determined by fan voting. Those interested in voting should go to www.NFL.com/FedEx. If Rice receives the most fan votes, FedEx will make a $1,000 donation in his name to the local Safe Kids USA coalition in Baltimore to help fund child and pedestrian safety.

Voting ends at noon Eastern Standard Time on Friday.
