Bengals DT Geno Atkins Named To NFL.com All Pro Team

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins is quickly gaining a reputation of being the best defensive tackle in football.

The accolades keep coming for Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins.

On Thursday he was named to the 2012 Pro Football Weekly/Professional Football Writers All-Pro team after generating 12.5 quarterback sacks and a handful of offensive linemen that feared losing their jobs. Or at the very least an epiphany on the ideals of humblism.

NFL.com released their All-Pro team Friday, naming Atkins alongside Vince Wilfork at defensive tackle. Not surprised.

Defensive tackles aren't expected to function as primary pass rushers, but Atkins (12.5 sacks) is changing that perception.

By the time it's all said and done with postseason awards, Atkins may be one of the more celebrated defensive tackles in football.
