Brown named to PFWA All-NFL team


Receiver Antonio Brown was named to the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) All-NFL team for the second straight year.

Brown, who missed the AFC Divisional playoff game with a concussion, was named to the *Associated Press *All-Pro team earlier this month. Brown finished the regular season as the NFL's leading receiver with a career-high 1,834 yards and tied for first in the NFL with a career-high 136 receptions. He became the first player in Steelers' history with back-to-back seasons with at least 1,700 yards from scrimmage and led the NFL with 2,074 combined yards (including rushing, receiving and returns).

Brown and guard David DeCastro, also an AP All-Pro selection, were both named to the PFWA All-AFC team as well. It's the third time Brown was All-AFC and the first time for DeCastro.
