NFL Names All-Decade Team

Billy Woods | April 7th, 2020

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic that has all sports at a standstill, the NFL selected the All-Decade team for the 2010s, which featured eight unanimous selections.

The selection committee consisted of 48 Hall of Fame members who all agreed on the decade brilliance of Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson, J.J. Watt, Von Miller, Aaron Donald, Joe Thomas, Marshal Yanda and Justin Tucker. All but Thomas and Yanda, both offensive linemen, are active. Of the eight unanimous selections, only Brady, Miller, Yanda and Tucker won Super Bowls during the decade.

The NFL’s All-Decade team offense features Brady and Aaron Rodgers at quarterback; Peterson, LeSean McCoy, Marshawn Lynch and Frank Gore at running back; Antonio Brown, Larry Fitzgerald, Calvin Johnson (who retired in 2016 by the way. Yeah, he was great) and Julio Jones at wide receiver; Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce at tight end; Thomas, Jason Peters, Tyron Smith and Joe Staley at tackle; Yanda, Jahri Evans, Logan Mankins and Zack Martin at guard; and Alex Mack and Maurkice Pouncey at center.

The NFL’s All-Decade team defense features Watt, Calais Campbell, Cameron Jordan and Julius Peppers at end; Donald, Ndamukong Suh, Deno Atkins and Fletcher Cox at tackle; Miller, Luke Kuechly, Bobby Wagner, Patrick Willis, Chandler Jones and Khalil Mack at linebacker; Patrick Peterson, Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman at cornerback; Eric Berry, Earl Thomas and Eric Weddle at safety; and Chris Harris and Tyrann Mathieu were added at defensive back.

The two coaches selected were Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll. The Seattle Seahawks have the most selections with five total players, as their defense has consistently been one of the best throughout the decade. During the decade, Peterson was the only non-quarterback to win the MVP award.
