Johnson Named to AP All-Pro Second Team

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on January 24, 2011 – 4:56 pm

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been named to the Associated Press Second-Team All-Pro.

Johnson, who will spend this week in Honolulu for the Pro Bowl, finished the year with 1,120 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 starts.

“It’s an exciting time for him,” said wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson. “All of us around the Lions organization have seen him come in and work his butt off. He didn’t say anything – he’s very unselfish.”

Both Johnson and teammate Ndamukong Suh were named starters on this year’s Pro Bowl team and both were recognized by the AP; Suh the only rookie named to the All-Pro First Team.

    Well said, Shaun Hill and Drew Stanton with a vet back up would be hard to beat and trade Matt for a shut down DB…….perfect!

    A great honour for 2 GREAT players . The real beauty of it all is that teams will be looking at their scheduals next seson & cringing when they come across Detroit , & rightly so :)

    CJ deserves to be 1st team all pro. He played with 3 qb’s . That alone is reason to raise his stats. We not even talking about the TD stolen from him in game one.
