Football | 12/4/19

The NFL is full of talented players. From 2010 through 2019, some of the best players of all-time hit the gridiron. Every Sunday athletes like Tom Brady and Richard Sherman left their blood, sweat, and tears in the green grass. They’ve earned their place on the All-Decade team. The rest of the field wasn’t so easy to choose. Which wide receiver jumped higher than their peers? Which running back bull-rushed through defenders with more vigor than the others? This is our list of NFL’s All-Decade Team for the 2010s.

Choosing the lead back for the All-Decade team wasn’t easy, but at the end of the day, we went with the most explosive player available. During the last decade, McCoy was the only running back to rush for over 10,000 yards.

Even though his career hit a nosedive near the end of the decade, it’s impossible to deny his credentials. Starting his career with the Eagles, McCoy also played with the Buffalo Bills, where he earned three Pro Bowl nominations. In 2019 he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.
