Daryl Washington might be disappointed that he’s an NFC team alternate for the 2013 Pro Bowl, but the Arizona Cardinals inside linebacker has at least one honor to hang his hat on.
Friday, NFL.com writer Bucky Brooks announced his 2012 All-Pro team, and Washington was the lone Cardinal to make the list.
In just his third year in the league, Washington led Arizona in tackles (108), tackles for a loss (8) and sacks (9). The former second-selection should be in the Valley for years to come, as he signed a new six-year deal in September worth $32.5 million.
In addition to Washington, the NFC West was well-represented on Brooks’ team with Marshawn Lynch, Anthony Davis, Mike Iupoti, NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Dashon Goldson.
