On Monday, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White and defensive end John Abraham were named to The Associated Press 2010 All-Pro Team. Both players played a big role in the Falcons emerging as one of the top teams in the NFC with a 13-3 record–which earned them the No. 1 seed in the playoffs.
This marks the first time in White’s six-year career he’s earned an All-Pro selection–and it’s much deserved. He recorded franchise records with 115 catches for 1,389 yards–his fourth-straight season crossing the 1,000-yard mark.
As for Abraham, this is the third time in his career he’s been an All-Pro selection–with the other two times coming in 2001 and 2008. He finished the season with 13 sacks (fifth best) and became just the 25th player in NFL history to record at least 100 sacks in their career.
While White and Abraham were named to the first team, the Associated Press honored two other members of the Falcons. Running back Michael Turner and fullback Ovie Mughelli were both named to the All-Pro second team.
