Brady, Gronk & Slater Earn All-Pro Honors
The Associated Press announced it's All-Pro teams Friday and three New England Patriots cracked the list.
The team's quarterback, Tom Brady, and tight end, Rob Gronkowski, were both named to the offensive first team, while special teams ace Matthew Slater was named to the special teams second unit.
Gronkowski was named to his 4th career All-Pro team, as he secured his final $2.5 million worth of incentives with the nomination.
The veteran receiver used his strong season of 69 catches for 1,084 and eight touchdowns to take 40 of the 50 possible votes for the first team tight end spot.
Brady earned his third career first team All-Pro nod, after posting a league-high 4,577 passing yards and throwing for 32 touchdowns this season. Not to outdo his teammate, Brady took 47 of the 50 possible votes for the position.
Finally, Slater was named to the second team special teams unit, even though he missed seven games this season. That is an impressive feat for the skilled special teamer.
