Another honor for Brown

The Sporting News announced their 2016 NFL Award winners, as voted on by current players and coaches, and Antonio Brown was selected as one of the All-Pro wide receivers.

Brown, who was previously named to the Associated Press 2016 NFL All-Pro Team, became the first player in Steelers' history with 1,000 receiving yards and 10 receiving touchdowns in three straight seasons (2014-16), and the first player in team history to record 90 receptions in four straight seasons.

Le'Veon Bell finished second in Comeback Player of the Year voting, behind Green Bay's Jordy Nelson.

Bell, who finished last season on injured reserve, finished the 2016 regular season with 261 carries for 1,268 yards, a 4.9-yard average, and seven touchdowns. He also had 75 receptions for 616 yards and two touchdowns.

Bell also finished sixth in Offensive Player of the Year voting, while Brown finished eighth.
