Several players with AFC West ties were named to the NFL’s All-decade team for the 2000s. The entire team was revealed Sunday.
Here are the players who played significant time in the division during the decade:
CB Champ Bailey
My take: Bailey was one of the top five players of the decade, regardless of position.
My take: Another honor for one of the greatest tight ends to ever play.
KR Dante Hall
My take: Before Devin Hester, Hall was blowing minds with his return wizardry.
My take: One of the toughest linemen in recent memory.
My take: Shields was a class act and a great player.
My take: He is the premier punter in the game.
My take: Gates is still getting better.
FB Lorenzo Neal
My take: Neal paved the way for many LT TDs.
My take: He was the best player in the division in the decade.
