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.
