The Associated Press released their All-Pro teams for the 2020 season on Friday, and a familiar name was among those who earned the honors.
For the sixth time in his Hall of Fame career, Bobby Wagner has been named to the AP All-Pro team. All six selections have been for the first-team, with 2020 being the fifth consecutive year Wagner has been named the top middle linebacker in the sport.
“The marvelous durability that he’s demonstrated for middle linebacker after all these years is just off the charts,” Pete Carroll said of Wagner’s selection, via the AP.
Wagner has enjoyed an absolutely fantastic 2020 season, impacting the game as a pass rusher, run defender, and in coverage. In 16 games, Wagner totaled 3 sacks, 138 tackles, seven tackles for loss, 11 QB hits, and eight passes defended.
The Seattle Seahawks’ defensive leader continues to build a Hall of Fame résumé as one of the greatest players of his era, regardless of position. Through nine seasons, Wagner has earned six first-team All-Pro selections and seven Pro-Bowls.
Wide receiver DK Metcalf and safety Jamal Adams were named second-team All-Pro for 2020. For Metcalf, it’s his first selection in just his second season after totaling 83 catches, 1,303 yards, and 10 touchdowns during the regular season.
Adams earned his second All-Pro honor, after being named first team a year ago. In his first season in Seattle, Adams broke the record for most sacks by a defensive back with 9.5 and has helped to lead a resurgent Seahawks defense.
