Welker and Gronkowski Selected to AP All-Pro Team


The AP NFL All-Pro team has been selected, which spans over both the AFC and the NFC. The NFC leads the way with 16 players chosen while the AFC has 12 representatives on the All-Pro team. The San Francisco 49ers has the most players on the All-Pro team with 5 while the Baltimore Ravens come in second place with 3. The New England Patriots have two players that were selected by the Associated Press for the All-Pro team: TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Wes Welker.

Here’s the snippet from the AP on Gronk and Welker:

Record-setter Rob Gronkowski was the tight end. The Patriot set the single-season mark at his position with 1,327 yards receiving. Teammate Wes Welker (league-high 122 catches) was the other receiver [along with the Lions' Calvin Johnson].

Tom Brady did not receive any votes, with the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers dominating the voting and the Saints’ Drew Brees coming in second.
