The Kansas City Chiefs were able to land five players on the Pro Bowl team this year despite a 2-14 record, but getting any spots on the AP All-Pro team would be a much more difficult task.
Even though there has been shortage of great backs in the NFL this season, Jamaal Charles found his way onto the 2nd team. Ahead of Charles were Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings and Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks on the first team.
Joining Charles on the second team is Alfred Morris from the Washington Redskins.
Peterson, as expected, was a unanimous (50) selection, while Lynch got 24 votes to earn his place on the first team. Morris actually received more votes (14) than Charles (7).
He wasn’t all-world like Peterson, but Charles also had a huge return from major knee surgery and racked up over 1,500 yards for an offense that played all season without a quarterback.
If new head coach Andy Reid can find even an average quarterback next season and gets Charles more involved in the passing game, we could see a new member on the first team this time next year.
