Geno Atkins has been named Week 12 NFLPA Community MVP for providing $50,000 in gifts, meals and other surprises for more than 800 essential workers and underserved people in Cincinnati during his third annual "Atkins Week of Giving."

"It's an honor to be named the Week 12 NFLPA Community MVP," Atkins said. "I know now more than ever, my teammates and other players around the league have gone so far above and beyond to make positive change in our communities, so it's definitely a special honor to receive this."

This marks the third straight season that Atkins has earned NFLPA Community MVP, each time for his tremendous annual week of outreach.

Atkins is the second Bengals player to earn the honor. Safety Shawn Williams was named the NFLPA Community MVP in Week 7.
