One week after placing seven players (at eight positions) on ESPN.com NFC East Blogger Dan Graziano’s weekly All-NFC East Team, the Redskins have a new representative on the list.
Center Will Montgomery is the newcomer on this week’s All-NFC East Team, which is not a week-by-week evaluation, but a reflection of an entire season’s body of work.
Montgomery replaces Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, who was listed on last week’s team.
Here’s all the Redskins on this week’s All-NFC East Team, according to Graziano:
– Quarterback: Robert Griffin III
– Fullback: Darrel Young
– Left tackle: Trent Williams
– Center: Will Montgomery
– Outside linebacker: Ryan Kerrigan
– Cornerback: Josh Wilson
– Kicker: Billy Cundiff
– Punt returner: Brandon Banks
Banks was also listed as Graziano’s representative at kick returner last week, but he’s replaced this week by the New York Giants’ David Wilson.
A notable Redskins player left off this list is defensive end Stephen Bowen, who has been everywhere for Washington through its first two games this season, picking up nine tackles and knocking down three passes. Graziano said Bowen nearly made this week’s list.
Graziano also said he almost made it a clean Redskins sweep at outside linebacker by placing Brian Orakpo in the second spot instead of the Dallas Cowboys DeMarcus Ware.
‘But this is an all-year team, and sadly, Orakpo won’t be making it this year, as this turns out to have been his last chance,” Graziano wrote. “He’s out for the season with a chest muscle injury.”
