Steelers players honored by PFWA

Three Steelers were named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-NFL team, including Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and David DeCastro.

Brown, who was a unanimous first-team AP All-Pro selection already, finished the regular season with 101 receptions for 1,533 yards, a 15.2 yard per catch average, and nine touchdowns. He averaged 109.5 yards per game through the first 14 games of the season, missing the final two due to injury.

Bell, also a first-team AP All-Pro selection, finished the season as the NFL's third leader rusher with 1,291 yards on 321 carries and nine touchdowns. Bell added 85 receptions for 655 yards and two receiving touchdowns to his totals, finishing second in the NFL, and first in the AFC, in yards from scrimmage with 1,946 yards.  

DeCastro rounds out the Steelers selected to the PFWA All-NFL team. DeCastro, a first-team AP All-Pro this year, is part of a stellar offensive line that has led the way for Bell all season, and he was voted to the Pro Bowl for the third time.

The three players were also named to the PFWA All-AFC team, along with Maurkice Pouncey and Alejandro Villanueva on the offensive line, and linebacker Ryan Shazier. The Steelers led all AFC teams with six conference selections, all of which were also previously voted to the Pro Bowl.
