The Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) named Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed and Miami Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis to their annual All-Rookie Team Tuesday.
Reed, who is currently taking classes at UF to finish his degree, had a record-setting season despite missing seven games.
His 45 receptions and 499 receiving yards were both Redskins’ single-season rookie tight end records.
He finished the year with three touchdowns, one of which came in his career-high performance (nine catches for 134 yards) against the Chicago Bears.
Sturgis converted on 26 of 34 field goal attempts (long of 54) and made all 33 of his extra point attempts.
In Miami’s 22-20 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, Sturgis hit a 44-yarder with 11 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime.
Sturgis won the starting job in August over veteran Dan Carpenter by showing off his long-distance ability, which included a 58-yard field goal in the preseason.
Reed and Sturgis were selected in the third and fifth rounds, respectively, of the 2013 NFL Draft.
