Well deserved yet again.

For the second year in a row, only one Philadelphia Eagles player made the PFWA All-NFL Team roster: Darren Sproles.

Sproles was a bright spot once again in a disappointing season for the Birds. The 32-year-old veteran led the NFL in punt return yards (446) and finished second in average yards per return (11.7). His two punts returned for touchdowns were the most in the league. Sproles was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 3 thanks to his touchdown return against the New York Jets. Sproles was also named to the Pro Bowl for the second year in a row.

No other Eagles players were named to the PFWA All-NFL team or even the PFWA All-NFC team. Full roster below.
