Line Of Honor
AP names Kelce, Lane Johnson First-Team All Pro
Offensive line is perhaps the strongest unit of an Eagles team that set a franchise record with 14 wins and earned the NFC’s top seed.
Not surprisingly, two Eagles offensive linemen were named first-team All Pro by the Associated Press, which released its entire list Friday.
Right tackle Lane Johnson and center Jason Kelce each made first-team All Pro, which isn’t a new honor for each. Kelce made first-team All Pro last season and now has five in his 12-year career. Johnson is a first-team All Pro for the second time in his 10-year career.
Johnson made second team last year. Kelce has made first or second team in five of the past six seasons.
Named to the second team from the Eagles were: Quarterback Jalen Hurts, wide receiver A.J. Brown, edge defender Haason Reddick, and cornerback James Bradberry. Three of those four – except Hurts – were either free-agent signings or trade additions this past offseason.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes finished ahead of Hurts for first-team All Pro. Other first-teamers include Cowboys right guard Zack Martin, Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson, and Jets rookie corner Sauce Gardner.
