FS Earl Thomas and CB Richard Sherman are repeat members of the first team of the Associated Press All-Pro team, annually the most prestigious honor among NFL post-season awards. SS Kam Chancellor, a third member of the Legion of Boom, made the second team. The complete list, announced Friday morning, is here.
No Seahawks offensive or special teams players were named. A year ago, C Max Unger and RB Marshawn Lynch were on the first team, as were Sherman and Thomas. Thomas was the first repeat choice at safety since Pittsburgh’s Troy Polamalu in 2010-11. Sherman was the first repeater at cornerback since Darrelle Revis in 2009-11.
The second-team quarterback spot was unfilled because Denver’s Peyton Manning was the unanimous selection by 50 sportswriters from around the country who cover the NFL on a regular basis. DE Robert Mathis of Indianapolis and TE Jimmy Graham of New Orleans received 49 votes and Sherman 48.
The top punter, Johnny Hekker of St. Louis, is a Bothell High School and Oregon State grad.
