Two Patriots Headline the All Pro Team: TE Rob Gronkowski, K Stephen Gostkowski

The New England Patriots have two players on the Associated Press's First Team All Pro squad.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski earned his third career 1st team All Pro nod, with 72 catches for 1,176 yards and 11 touchdowns. Gronkowski was not a unanimous All Pro, unlike last season. Gronkowski is on track to be the most decorated tight end in NFL history. Gronkowski is now tied for 4th-most All Pros in a tight end's career, behind Tony Gonzalez (6) and Dave Casper and Shannon Sharpe (4).

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski earned his second career 1st team All Pro nod. Gostkowski led the league in scoring for the fourth straight season and was perfect on extra points from the new location. Gostkowski was 33/36 on field goals, with his three misses from 46-yards, 48-yards, and 54-yards.

Linebacker Jamie Collins is the only Patriot named to the 2nd team All Pro. Quarterback Tom Brady lost out to Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer. This is the first season since 2002 that Brady, Peyton ManningDrew Brees, and Aaron Rodgers have not made the All Pro team.
