Derwin James Voted to PFWA All-Rookie Team


Mere hours after he was named to **Pro Football Writers of America (PWFA) All-NFL and All-AFC teams**, Derwin James earned PWFA All-Rookie Team honors.

This marks the fourth-straight year a Charger has made PFWA's All-Rookie Team.

"I feel like I got better this season," James said of his rookie campaign. "As the year progressed, I feel like the game slowed down more and more, and I feel like I improved throughout the year."

This marks another accolade for James as he was also voted a Pro Bowl starter and named a First and Second-Team All-Pro by the Associated Press.
