A couple weeks ago we brought you news about two Chicago Bears players making Mel Kiper's 2015 All Rookie Team. I had a feeling that wouldn't be the last time safety Adrian Amos and nose tackle Eddie Goldman would be honored for their rookie seasons in Chicago.

The entire 2015 rookie class had an impact for the Bears, but Amos and Goldman look like cornerstones for the future. Earlier today the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA) revealed their 2015 All Rookie Team and both Bears made the cut.

Here are all their selections.
