FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant and kick returner Devin Hester were named to the 2014 All-NFC team, chosen in voting conducted by the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA).
Trufant was one of the few bright spots on the Falcons defense, which finished the season ranked 32nd in the league. Trufant made 61 tackles (53 solo), 16 passes defense, three interceptions and had one tackle for loss.
Of the 16 passes defense, he had at least six other opportunities for interceptions. If he’d made those, he’d likely would have received more consideration from Pro Bowl voters.
Also, Devin Hester had 43 kickoff returns for 1,128 yards (25.1 averaged per return).
