A Few Former Chiefs Land on NFL's All-Decade Team

New, comments

The NFL has released their all-decade team and there are a few Kansas City Chiefs connections on there.

First, the obvious ones that have been popping up on quite a few of the all-decade teams.

  • TE Tony Gonzalez (along with Antonio Gates)
  • LT Willie Roaf (Along with Walter Jones, Jonathan Ogden and Orlando Pace)
  • G Will Shields (Along with Larry Allen, Alan Faneca and Steve Hutchinson)
  • LB Zach Thomas (Along with Derrick Brooks, Ray Lewis, Joey Porter, Brian Urlacher and DeMarcus Ware)
  • CB Ty Law (Along with Ronde Barber, Champ Bailey and Charles Woodson)
  • PR Dante Hall (Along with Devin Hester)

Any complaints among these? 

Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson had incredible runs but didn't have the longevity to be considered. Brian Waters has been incredibly consistent but I'm not sure I would put him in the Faneca/Allen/Shields/Hutchinson discussion.

After the jump are a few of the All-Decade teams we've been seeing recently.
