Rodgers, Woodson Named To All-Pro Team
The Green Bay Packers put two players on the NFL All-Pro team — quarterback Aaron Rodgers and cornerback Charles Woodson.
It’s Rodgers’ first selection and the seventh for Woodson, who’s made the team each of the past three seasons. In what will surely be a surprise to some, Rodgers easily outdistanced New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. The Packers signal caller received 47.5 votes to Brees’ 2.5.
Only three players received more votes than Rodgers — Lions’ receiver Calvin Johnson and Vikings’ defensive end Jared Allen each got 49, which is one short of a unanimous selection, and Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis received 48.
The San Francisco 49ers led the league with five All-Pro selections.
The All-Pro team is selected by a panel of 50 Associated Press members. You can see the full team here.
