Burton named Payton Man of the Year nominee


Throughout the season, Burton has pledged to donate $1,000 per catch and $2,500 per touchdown to International Justice Mission, which is a global organization that aims to eliminate slave trade.


Prior to his involvement with the social justice committee, Burton had developed a relationship with By the Hand Club for Kids through numerous visits to their Austin location and had helped host them at Halas Hall for practice and a mini-career fair with Bears staff and Chicago police officers.
