On Monday, the NFL and the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the NFL All Decade Team of the 2010s. Unsurprisingly, players like Tom Brady and Adrian Peterson were among the eight unanimous choices for the all-decade team. Looking for which players to be left off?
Firstly, the players were selected by the 48-member Hall of Fame selection committee. The other unanimous selections on the team were J.J. Watt, Von Miller, Aaron Donald, Joe Thomas, Marshal Yanda and Justin Tucker. All the players on the team, with the exception of Thomas and Yanda are still active. Talk about good!
Secondly, team comprises of players who made an AP All-Pro team. A Pro Bowl or a Pro Football Writers of America all-conference squad from 2010 to ’19. Four of the unanimous players won Super Bowls.
Seattle leads the way with five people: linebacker Bobby Wagner, safety Earl Thomas, cornerback Richard Sherman, running back Marshawn Lynch and coach Pete Carroll, for instance.
