Antonio Brown named to AP All Pro second team

Karl Walter

AFC North lands three receivers in first two All Pro teams, with Brown getting a spot on the second team after record-setting season.

The Steelers picked up what will likely be its highest individual player award Friday when the league announced wide receiver Antonio Brown was named to the All Pro second team for his franchise-record 2013 season.

Brown caught 110 passes for a franchise-high 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns this season, earning him a spot on the second team along with Denver's Demaryius Thomas and Cincinnati's A.J. Green.

Detroit's Calvin Johnson and Cleveland's Josh Gordon were the first team selections.

Brown, the Steelers' 2013 MVP, was also selected to the Pro Bowl for the second time in his four-year career. He added 425 punt and kick return yards to his resume, giving him 1,928 yards, third-most in team history (his 2,211 yards in 2011 are the highest all purpose yardage total in team history).

The Steelers haven't had a first team All Pro wide receiver selection since John Stallworth in 1979.
