Antonio Brown named to All-AFC team

PITTSBURGH -- Antonio Brown added another honor after authoring the best season ever by a wide receiver in Steelers history.

Brown joined the Browns’ Josh Gordon on the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) All-AFC team.

Gordon, who led the NFL with 1,646 receiving despite Cleveland’s instability at quarterback, and Detroit’s Calvin Johnson were the wide receivers on PFWA’s All-NFL team.

Brown set a Steelers’ single-season record with 1,499 yards. The fourth-year veteran came up just three catches shy of breaking Hines Ward’s team record for most catches (112) in a season.

Brown made the Pro Bowl as a wide receiver and a punt returner, and his teammates voted him Steelers’ MVP for the second time in the last three seasons.

Brown was a second-team All-Pro pick, and among the wide receivers he beat out for a spot on the PFWA’s All-AFC team were Cincinnati’s A.J. Green and Denver’s Demaryius Thomas.
