Four Eagles make landing on Associated Press All-Pro Team

5 January 2018 Eagles News

The Associated Press made their selections for the 2017 Associated All-Pro Team on Friday, with four members of the Philadelphia Eagles landing on their team.

Both RT Lane Johnson and C Jason Kelce were named First-team All-Pro for their efforts this season, with QB Carson Wentz and DT Fletcher Cox both making Second-team All-Pro.

Lane Johnson showed the NFL world what he was made of in 2017, going up against some of the best talents in the NFL off the edge. Jason Kelce rebounded from a down year in 2016 but showcased his blocking talents in both the running game and passing game for the Eagles in 2017.

It’s safe to say, Wentz could have made a final push to make first-team all pro if he didn’t tear his ACL, which forced him to miss the last three games of the season. Fletcher Cox also has been dominant, but when you draw as much attention as he does, it’s hard to draw numbers on the inside when you’re double-teamed. Aaron Donald, who made First-Team All-Pro, did have an outstanding season
