PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — On Friday, four members of the Eagles were named Second Team All-Pro. Return man Darren Sproles, LB Connor Barwin, LT Jason Peters and DE Fletcher Cox all received the honor.

For Sproles, it was his first career All-Pro selection. Sproles provided the Eagles with a much needed jolt on both offense and on special teams.

Sproles also received the honor of getting his Pro Bowl selection in 2014 and was the only player in the NFL to take two punts back for touchdowns. Sproles also recorded six rushing touchdowns on the season and led the league in punt return average (13.3 yards).

Also earning his first All-Pro selection was Barwin. The Eagles linebacker tied for fourth in the NFL, and first in the NFC, with 14.5 sacks (career high).

Like Sproles, Barwin was also rewarded with his first Pro Bowl selection.

The All-Pro nod was just another one to add to the list for Peters. The Eagles left tackle has asserted himself as one of the league’s premiere offensive lineman and was once again named to the Pro Bowl in 2014 to go along with his sixth All-Pro selection.

Peters was the beacon of consistency for the Eagles offensive line in 2014 as he was the only player in the unit to start all 16 games.

Cox also joined his teammates as a Second Team All-Pro coming off a season in which he earned himself the recognition of being the team’s defensive leader up front. Unlike his fellow All-Pro teammates, Cox was not selected to the Pro Bowl and was named a sixth alternate for the game.

The omission was widely regarded as a snub to those who watched Cox for 16 games.

His numbers do not stack up to 4-3 defensive ends due to the differing responsibilities he has as a 3-4 defensive end, but Cox has gained the praise of his coaches and teammates for being an elite for up front for the Eagles.
