Sproles Leads Eagles On PFWA All-NFL Team

On Friday, four Eagles were named to the 2014 AP All-Pro Second Team ...

Another day, another heaping helping of recognition for a quartet of Eagles.

The Pro Football Writers Association announced its All-NFL, All-NFC and All-AFC teams Monday, and four Eagles were honored with selections.

Running back Darren Sproles was named to the All-NFL team as a punt returner, while left tackle Jason Peters, outside linebacker Connor Barwin and defensive end Fletcher Cox were named to the All-NFC team.

These four Eagles have led the pack of Eagles picking up numerous postseason awards.

Peters, Sproles and Barwin were all voted to the 2015 Pro Bowl. All four were voted as second-team All-Pro players by the Associated Press. Pro Football Focus named the Eagles' offensive line, including Peters, the second-best unit in the league and named Sproles its All-Pro punt returner.

It was quite a year for the four players: Peters posted a 38.2 Pro Football Focus grade this year, the highest grade in the league among tackles; Sproles set career highs with two punt return touchdowns and a league-best average of 13.0 yards per punt return; Barwin posted an NFC-best and career-high 14.5 sacks and forced a pair of fumbles and Cox's 30.5 Pro Football Focus grade was the fifth highest among all 3-4 defensive ends.
