J.J. Watt is an All-Pro again
By Tania Ganguli
HOUSTON -- Texans defensive end J.J. Watt made his second Pro Bowl this season and he's also been honored as an All-Pro player for the second year in a row.
The 2012 defensive player of the year is a first-team All-Pro selection along with St. Louis defensive end Robert Quinn.
I peeked at the voting breakdowns from the Associated Press. The panel included 50 voters. Peyton Manning was a unanimous selection for first-team All-Pro quarterback and there was no second-team quarterback chosen. He was the only unanimous choice.
Beyond Watt, though, only one other Texans player received any votes from the panel: punter Shane Lechler received three.
Receiver Andre Johnson was the Texans' other Pro Bowl selection, but didn't get a single All-Pro vote. His category went as such:
Calvin Johnson, Detroit, 42; Josh Gordon, Cleveland, 28; A.J. Green, Cincinnati, 12; Demaryius Thomas, Denver, 6; Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh, 6; Brandon Marshall, Chicago, 5; Alshon Jeffery, Chicago, 1.
