The 2010 NFL All-Decade Team of Sporting News

The NFL has 10 minutes of existence. What just ends, between 2010 and 2019, has led some of the biggest players to ever play the game in all positions.

Football has never been faster with so many explosive athletes. He has also become smarter with so many strokes, hard workers on both sides of the ball. But only a handful of players have been able to make last year’s piece of Sporting News’ latest NFL team.

Holding all the grandeur, here are the 26 men who deserve the most for being the best in their positions in the last 10 years.

The NFL team of all decades of Sporting News: Offense

QB: Tom Brady, Patriots

  • Pro Bowl: 9 | First Team All-Pros: 2 | Super Bowl wins: 3 | MVPs: 2

Whether it’s the magic of the TB12 method or Brady adapting his game to a new environment he has never seen before, it was renewed in the 1930s and 40s. He doubled his ring collection and went from the top five biggest players to the unattested GOAT.

RB: LeSean McCoy, Eagles, Bills and Heads

  • Pro Bowl: 6 | First group: 3

McCoy has rushed for 11,071 yards and 73 touchdowns since 2010 during his time with three teams. It has added 3,797 yards received with 16 more ratings. He is a top 25 consecutive NFL player now in his 30s.

RB: Adrian Peterson, Vikings, Saints, Cardinals, Redskins

  • Pro Bowl: 4 | First Team All-Pros: 2

Peterson continues to climb the all-time list at the age of 34, proving to be a strange nature by age and injury. He has rushed for most of his career of 14,102 rush yards since 2010 and recently surpassed Curtis Martin for number 5 of all time. He has also delivered 72 rushing TDs in the decade with really only seven full seasons.

WR: July Jones, Hawks

  • Pro Bowl: 6 | First Team All-Pros: 2

Since being drafted in 2011, Jones has been a dominant, often unreliable force with a combination of size (6-3, 220), power and speed. Highly durable to play with all kinds of light injuries, it reached 11,881 receiving yards and 57 receiving TDs, twice the league in yardage.

WR: Antonio Brown, Steelers and Patriots

  • Pro Bowl: 7 | First Team All-Pros: 4

Brown’s career could come to an end after more than a decade. During his best days with the Steelers, it was a theft of the sixth-round pick in 2010. In just over nine seasons, Brown posted 11,263 catches and 75 TDs.

TE: Rob Gronkowski, Patriots

  • Pro Bowl: 5 | First Team All-Pros: 4 | Super Bowl wins: 3

Whether or not Gronk decides to retire and return either in 2020 or beyond, his legacy is undoubtedly the best all-around tight end ever cement. From 2010 to 2018, he recorded 7,861 yards and 79 TDs in just 115 regular season games and also dominated the shutout.

OT: Joe Thomas, Browns

  • Pro Bowl: 5 | First Team All-Pros: 5

Thomas (6-6, 312 pounds) has been a rock for the Browns’ blind side since being the first rotor in 2007 with his retirement in 2017. He gave everything he could as a pass and blocked and made it a class act all the way in Cleveland.

OT: Tyron Smith, Cowboys

  • Pro Bowl: 6 | First Team All-Pros: 2

Smith (6-5, 320 lbs) was the first true piece of the Cowboys’ offensive line that has turned into a cornerstone of their running and successful over the decade. He is still only 28 years old with many more years ahead.

G: General Yadda, Ravens

  • Pro Bowl: 7 | First Team All-Pros: 2 | Super Bowl wins: 1

Jada (6-3, 305 lbs) continues to perform well as the 35-year-old finishes his 13th season. It has played a key role in their efforts to block all these years and a steady force in maintaining the rest of the unit along with various changes.

C: Jacques Martin, the Cowboys

  • Pro Bowl: 5 | First group: 3

Martin (6-4, 315 pounds) easily made this list despite only playing six of the 10 seasons. It has the strong internal power that plays every injury and is consistent in generating athletic momentum for current and past games.

C: Maurkice Pouncey, Steelers

  • Pro Bowl: 7 | First Team All-Pros: 2

Pouncey (6-4, 304 pounds) has been the anchor for many strong Steelers lines in the Mike Tomlin era since 2010. He’s the guy who makes the line calls and gets everything to work so well forward, reliable for quarterbacks. and its rulers.

Sports News’ NFL All-Decade Team: Defense

DT: Aaron Donald, Ramsey

  • Pro Bowl: 5 | First Team All-Pros: 4 | Defensive Player of the Year Award: 2

Donald (6-1, 280kg) is not the greatest guy to disorganize his inside post, but he traps power with amazing sport for that size. The game from 2014 was good enough for him to make this list with 70.5 sacks in 92 games.

DT: Yeno Ackins, Bengals

  • Pro Bowl: 7 | First Team All-Pros: 2

Atkins (6-1, £ 300) is one of the most underrated players in the past decade. No more with this reference, celebrating its filling and the interior rushing (75.5 bags in 151 games).

DE: J.J. Watt, Texans

  • Pro Bowl: 5 | First Team All-Pros: 5 | Defensive Player of the Year Award: 3

With his last serious injury at the age of 30, this could be for Watt, but he is now worth mentioning with the best defensive players in any position. The 6-5, 288 pounder was the king of sacks, hits and blasts with 96 sacks in 112 games, despite only playing six full seasons.

DE: Calais Campbell, Cardinals and Jaguars

  • Pro Bowl: 4 | First Group All-Pros: 1

Campbell is incredible size (6-8, 300 lbs) for his position and has surpassed both the 3-4 and 4-3 figures. He received much more attention at age 30 for his dominance in Jacksonville. In addition to destroying the race, he has 81 sacks since 2010.

EDGE: Von Miller, Bronx

  • Pro Bowl: 7 | First team: 3 Super Bowl wins: 1

Miller, in the same training class for 2011 as Watt, has 105 sacks in his 133 career games. It may have slowed down a bit by 2019, but they are so consistent that they are coming back and throwing the generals.

EDGE: Khalil Mack, raiders and bears

  • Pro Bowl: 4 | First team: 3 Defensive Player of the Year Award: 1

It also only took six seasons to make the cut, as he was excellent at both the end and the outside linebacker in his six-year career. Mack (6-3, 269 lbs) is great to reach the quarterback (60.5 sacks in 92 games), but he is also clear of running and athletic enough to fall to the cover.

LB: Bobby Wagner, Seahawks

  • Pro Bowl: 5 | First Team All-Pros: 4 | Super Bowl wins: 1

The Boom Legion is gone, but Wagner (6-0, 242) remains the anchor of Pete Carroll’s defense and the other steals the 2012 draft after General Russell Wilson. Wagner is not only a player (1,120 tackles with 18.5 sacks and 10 INTs in eight seasons), but he is also an indispensable leader in the field.

LB: Luke Coeli, Panthers

  • Pro Bowl: 6 | First Team All-Pros: 5 | Defensive Player of the Year Award: 1

Kuechly is the original modern linebacker because he is great at flying upfield to tackle (1,108 with 12.5 sacks in eight seasons) and also covers back and tight ends (18 INTs, 65 passes defended). It’s the glue of the whole defense.

CB: Patrick Peterson, Cardinals

  • Pro Bowl: 8 | First group: 3

It’s still a first choice from the 2011 Outstanding Class. At 6-1, 203 lbs, Peterson used his size as well as his speed to be a finishing corner in his best days. He has 25 tackles and 81 passes defended as one of the most durable and solid coverage people in the field.

CB: Darrelle Revis, Jets, Buccaneers, Patriots and Managers

  • Pro Bowl: 3 | First team: 3 Super Bowl wins: 1

It was difficult to find the second corner, but retired Revis (5-11, 198kg) had to be the choice. He had 15 of 29 career tackles in the decade. Before fading to 30, he was worthy of the nickname “Revis Island” for isolating and shutting down his best broadband opponents.

S: Earl Thomas, Seahawks and Ravens

  • Pro Bowl: 6 | First team: 3 Super Bowl wins: 1

Thomas (5-10, 202) is the absolute position player with a great range and ball skills. He has 30 tackles, defended 71 passes and 729 tackles in 10 years. It was the Legion of the Boom member with the most complete resume to make the cut.

S: Eric Weddle, Chargers, Ravens and Rams

  • Pro Bowl: 6 | First Team All-Pros: 2

The bearded maven was as intimidating as he is with his powerful frame, 5-11, 195 pounds. Twenty-five of his career 29 side effects come in the decade, along with 6 sacks and 887 tackles. He has also become a respected leader in all three stops.

NFL team of all decades of Sporting News: Special teams

K: Justin Tucker, Ravens

  • Pro Bowl: 2 | First team: 3 Super Bowl wins: 1

Tucker is a good professional, having made 90.6 percent of his career attempts (260 of 287) and only missed three career attempts (292 of 295). It has a long range and continuous kicks, regardless of the weather.

P: Johnny Hekker, Rams

  • Pro Bowl: 4 | First Team All-Pros: 4

The Rams have long been special teams of aces and that’s a big reason why. Hekker has averaged 47.1 yards per punt with an impressive 43.4 net yards and has reduced 229 of his 590 career points to 20.

KR / PR: Devin Hester, bears and geraniums

  • Pro Bowl: 2 | First Team All-Pro: 1

“Devin Hester you are ridiculous!” should be his last name. During his last four years with the Bears, he had 7 of 19 TDs returning career touchdowns, and led the league in kickoff return yardage in both 2013 and 2014.
