Four 49ers, two current players, named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 2010s

Apr 6, 2020 at 9:46 AM--


Four San Francisco 49ers players, including two players on the current roster, have been named to the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 2010s. The NFL and the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Monday morning announced the 52 players who comprise the roster.

The two current 49ers players who make up the roster are veteran tackle Joe Staley and cornerback Richard Sherman. Although, the latter spent the majority of his pro career as a member of the Seattle Seahawks.

They are joined by two former players — running back Frank Gore and linebacker Patrick Willis.

The quarterbacks for the All-Decade team are Tampa Bay Buccaneers and longtime New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, a unanimous choice among voters, and Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers.

Staley is a six-time Pro Bowl player who is preparing (assuming he doesn't retire) to enter his 14th NFL season. The 49ers made him the No. 28 overall selection in the 2007 draft.

Sherman is entering his third season with the 49ers. Before that, he spent seven seasons with the rival Seahawks. He has been named to five Pro Bowls, including this past season's, and is a three-time first-team All-Pro.

Gore, a free agent, is hoping to catch on with a team for his 16th NFL season. He ranks third in NFL history with 15,347 rushing yards, behind just Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton. The future Hall of Famer, who spent his first 10 NFL seasons with the 49ers, has been selected to five Pro Bowls over his illustrious career.

Gore recently cast his vote for the ultimate sports duo, which included himself and his former 49ers teammate, Staley.

Willis spent eight seasons with the 49ers, the team that drafted him No. 11 overall the same year as Staley, before retiring. He was named to seven consecutive Pro Bowls (2007-13), is a five-time first-team All-Pro, and was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2007.

ESPN identifies two irreplaceable players on the 49ers roster

The San Francisco 49ers endured a league-high number of injuries last season in what was supposed to be a year dedicated to avenging their Super Bowl loss. Instead, the injuries quickly transformed the team's roster by Week 2. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo missed 10 games. Tight end George Kittle missed eight. The then-reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, Nick Bosa, was done by Week 2. The team went on to win just six games, finishing last in the NFC West. The 49ers hope 2020 was an outlier. On paper, the roster is talented. Players have to stay on the football field, though, for the team to reach its potential.

Frelund: Return of these two star players set 49ers up for playoff return

Earlier this week, on a segment of Game Theory, Cynthia Frelund gave her argument as for why the San Francisco 49ers will make the playoffs in 2021 after missing out in 2020. Frelund attributed their recent Super Bowl appearance as a factor in her decision as well as the multitude of injuries that affected the team last season. "They were in the Super Bowl just like five minutes ago and they had a whole bunch of injuries, but they get all those players back." Looking at the offensive side of the ball, Frelund highlighted star tight end George Kittle, who, according to Next Gen Stats, has averaged 8.0 yards after the catch per reception since 2018, which is the highest in the NFL given a minimum of 25 receptions. In addition to Kittle,
