The Pittsburgh Steelers' players continue to collect accolades for their individual performances for their 2014-2015 regular season.  Five Pittsburgh Steelers were named to the NFL Pro Bowl roster, and today three of those five were named to the Associated Press' All-Pro Team.

League-leading receiver Antonio Brown received 49 of the 50 votes to be the no. 1 receiver on the first team of the All-Pro rosters.  He came one vote shy of joining the Houston Texans' JJ Watt and the New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski as the only players to be unanimously voted to the All-Pro team.  This is his first time being named to the first team of the Associated Press All-Pro team, and his second time being named after being selected for the second team in 2013.

Bell was second in the NFL in rushing and led all running backs with 83 receptions. He was ruled out of Saturday's playoff game against Baltimore.

Four-time Pro Bowl center, Maurkice Pouncey, is now a three-time All-Pro player, receiving 24 votes. Brown was named to the second team last season after 110 catches and 1,499 yards.
