Steelers' Brown, DeCastro earn All-Pro honors

BY foxsports • January 8, 2016

The awards keep coming for Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown.

Just named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month, Brown was selected as an All-Pro for the second straight year after breaking a host of team and league records. Brown had one of the best statistical seasons in NFL history with 136 receptions for 1,834 yards, both career highs. He was joined at the other receiver spot by Atlanta's Julio Jones, who also had 136 catches and a league-best 1,871 yards. 

Right guard David DeCastro was also named to the All-Pro team, the first selection of his career. DeCastro, who earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl last month, was the Steelers best lineman this season, picking up the slack from injuries to center Maurkice Pouncey and left tackle Kelvin Beachum. He has started 40 straight games dating back to 2013.
