As expected, Seattle Seahawks players did not populate the NFL All-Pro Team for 2021, but one future hall of famer once again received All-Pro honors.
Linebacker Bobby Wagner was voted onto the All-Pro second-team for the second time in his career. It’s his eighth All-Pro selection overall, with six preceding first-team appearances (2014, 2016-2020) and a 2015 second-team placement.
Wagner recorded 170 tackles in 16 games, as well as a sack, an interception, and five passes defensed. Seattle played an extraordinarily high amount of defensive snaps and up until the first play of Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, Wagner lined up for all of them.
There’s been some speculation that this could be Bobby’s last season with the Seahawks, as his cap hit is north of $20 million in 2022, which doubles as the final year of his contract. Wagner is the team’s last remaining defensive player from the Super Bowl year, and when all is said and done he’ll be in Canton the moment that he’s eligible. It’s been an honor and a privilege to watch him play all of these years, and I hope that a knee sprain isn’t his final snap in Seattle.
As for other Seahawks who received votes, safety Quandre Diggs and punter Michael Dickson did get a few votes tossed their way, but not enough to make either All-Pro team. Jordyn Brooks got a single All-Pro vote, as did special teams ace and part-time fullback Nick Bellore.
The five players to get unanimous AP All-Pro First Team votes were Jonathan Taylor (hence no running backs were on the Second Team), Davante Adams, Cooper Kupp, T.J. Watt, and Aaron Donald.
