After being named the Bills 2013 Ed Block Courage Award recipient in December, Arthur Moats and his fellow award winners representing each NFL team were honored Monday night in Baltimore.

The Ed Block Courage Award is presented to a standout player who exemplifies a commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage. The recipient symbolizes professionalism, great strength, dedication and serves as a community role model for others.

Moats recovered from sports hernia surgery in the 2013 offseason, and went on to start in a career-best 12 games in 2013 as an inside linebacker. Off-the-field, he is the consummate player philanthropist. He was named the 2013 Bills Walter Payton Man of the Year as well, for both his on- and off-the-field efforts.

Past Bills recipients of the Ed Block Courage Award are listed here.
