Tom Brady is first QB to make two all-decade teams

Chris Simms and Mike Florio draft their top players in the AFC East from Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore to Jets safety Jamal Adams.

Add another accomplishment to Tom Brady’s legendary career: First quarterback ever named to two all-decade teams.

Brady was a unanimous choice for the 2010s all-decade team, which was his second honor after also making the 2000s all-decade team.

Among those joining Brady on both the 2010s all-decade team and the 2000s all-decade team were Bill Belichick, Julius Peppers, Devin Hester and Shane Lechler.

Chosen to both the 1990s and 2000s all-decade teams were Willie Roaf, Larry Allen and Warren Sapp.

Chosen to both the 1980s and 1990s all-decade teams were Morten Andersen, Gary Anderson, Sean Landeta, Ronnie Lott, Gary Zimmerman, Jerry Rice, Bruce Smith and Reggie White.

Chosen to both the 1970s and 1980s all-decade teams were Walter Payton, John Hannah, Mike Webster, Ted Hendricks, Jack Lambert, Billy Johnson Rick Upchurch and Chuck Noll.

Chosen to both the 1960s and 1970s all-decade teams were Dick Butkus, Bob Lilly, Merlin Olsen, Larry Wilson and Jim Bakken.

Making two all-decade teams is an impressive achievement -- and particularly for Brady, doing it at the sport’s most important position.
