The Green Bay Packers have landed six players on the annual AP All-Pro teams.
Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, David Bakhtiari, and Corey Linsley were all named members of the first team. Rodgers and Adams captured 46 and 49 first-team votes, respectively. This is the third appearance on the first team for Rodgers, the second for Bakhtiari, and the first each for Linsley and Adams.
For Rodgers, this is likely an indication that a third MVP award is in the works. Rodgers was among the leaders in the Pro Bowl voting and that, combined with an All-Pro first-team nod, is probably enough to propel him to the award.
Meanwhile, Jaire Alexander and Za’Darius Smith were both named to the AP All-Pro second team, both making an All-Pro list for the first time.
Elgton Jenkins and Mason Crosby also reportedly received votes, but it wasn’t enough for a second-team bid. Robert Tonyan, who tied the team record for receiving touchdowns by a tight with 11 and led all NFL tight ends in DVOA, wasn’t selected to either team.
