The 36-year-old Fletcher recorded a career-high 166 tackles along with three forced fumbles, two interceptions and 1.5 sacks this season.
No other Redskins earned All-Pro honors.
The NFL’s second-leading tackler, Cleveland’s D’Qwell Jackson, recorded 158 tackles.
Despite his strong numbers, Fletcher wasn’t selected for the Pro Bowl, but instead was named an alternate behind San Francisco’s Patrick Willis and Chicago’s Brian Urlacher. (Willis, teammate NaVorro Bowman and Kansas City’s Derrick Johnson earned first-team All-Pro honors, but Urlacher didn’t make the first or second team).
But Urlacher is injured and has said he will not play in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 29. It would appear that Fletcher’s chances of winding up in the game are strong, but an NFL spokesman said this week that no decision had been made.
Fletcher, who has made the Pro Bowl two other times as an alternate, will be a free agent this offseason, but has said that he wants to return to the Redskins, and Washington coach Mike Shanahan and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett have both called re-signing the 14-year veteran to be among the team’s priorities.
