The duo became Miami’s first pair of All-Pro teammates on the same year since 2006, when two guys named Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor were named first-team All-Pro under the watch of Nick Saban on defense. Between 2006 and 2020, only Cameron Wake (2012) and Jake Long (2010) received All-Pro recognition in any season.

Think about that. Miami has played one game this decade and equalled the number of All-Pro honors the team collected in the entirety of the 2010s all together.
