New Orleans Saints Player Makes The NFL All-Pro First Team
With the season already a few weeks over there has not been much news coming out of New Orleans except for Sean Payton’s official contract extension. However, three of the New Orleans Saints players still have the Pro Bowl to look forward to in January. One of those players was also named to the All-Pro first team, specifically offensive guard, Jahri Evans. Saints’ punter Thomas Morstead made the All-Pro second team and he will join Evans as well as Drew Brees in Hawaii for the 2013 Pro Bowl.
This marks Evans’ fourth consecutive All-Pro selection and it also marks the first time a Saints’ player has made the All-Pro team for three consecutive seasons. Evans was one of the more consistent players for the Saints this season and one of the best on the offensive line.
The Saints have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL and Evans has been a big part of the reason why. Evans has started 111 consecutive games since coming to the Saints in 2006 and has been a reliable pass and run blocker. Furthermore, Evans does a great job of protecting Brees and the Saints quarterback is glad to have him on the team.
Evans will be back next season for the Saints and will continue to be a consistent force the team. I am sure another All-Pro selection will be in Evans’ future for years to come as he has proven time and time again that he is one of the best offensive linemen in the league.
