[KC Chiefs.com] USA Today announced on Thursday that Chiefs DE Jared Allen, QB Damon Huard and C Casey Wiegmann have been named to the All-Joe Team. This marks the fifth consecutive selection on the All-Joe team for Wiegmann, the most of any player in team history since the inception of the award in ’92. Allen and Huard both received the honor for the first time in their careers.
The All-Joe Team takes its name from former Chiefs DT Joe Phillips who played 14 seasons for Kansas City, San Diego and Minnesota before retiring in ’99. According to USA Today’s Larry Weisman, the All-Joe Team is represented by “hard-working, overlooked, underappreciated player(s) who do the dirty work simply because that’s (their) lot in life.”
