The Kansas City Chiefs have struggled on the field the past few years.

But if there's one thing Chiefs players continue to do better than any other players in the NFL, it's give back to the community off the field. 

For the fifth time in the history of the NFL Man of the Year award, known since 1999 as the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, a Chiefs player has won for his generosity off the field. This year's winner is Chiefs All-Pro Guard Brian Waters. 

Waters established his Brian Waters 54 Foundation back in 2005, which provides opportunities for underprivileged children and low-income families. Among other charitable work that he does, Waters is also the Chiefs chairman for First Downs with Down Syndrome, a program that raises more than $400,000 annually. 

Waters joins former Chiefs greats Will Shields, Derrick Thomas, Len Dawson, and Willie Lanier on the list of winners from Kansas City.
