Both DE Jared Allen and DT Kevin Williams were named to the Pro Bowl last month, and now both of them have been named to the Sporting News All-Pro Defense team.
Allen and Williams join 3 offensive teammates- Percy Harvin, Steve Hutchinson and Adrian Peterson – as Vikings players named to the Sporting News’ All-Pro teams.
Only the Vikings and Denver Broncos had multiple players selected by Sporting News as All-Pros. Allen became just the 2nd player with at least 14.5 sacks in 3 consecutive seasons and Williams added 6.0 sacks of his own while also teaming with DT Pat Williams to form the Williams Wall and anchor the NFL’s 2nd-best run-stopping unit.
The complete NFL awards package can be found in the new Sporting News Magazine, which arrives later this week at all Barnes & Noble, Borders and Hudson Retail outlets. SN will announce other award winners throughout the week.
