The NFL All-Pro teams were revealed on Friday, naming the best players in the NFL at every position. The teams are voted on by 50 members of the Associated Press, creating a first team and a second team roster.
The Tennessee Titans, despite the tailspin that ended their season, placed two on the All-Pro second team.
Jeffery Simmons cracked the lineup as a second-team defensive lineman. The fourth-year pro also made the All-Pro second team last season, and backed it up in 2022. Starting 15 games, Simmons put up nine tackles for loss and hit the quarterback 14 times. He was credited with 54 total tackles.
With a roster that is suddenly short on building blocks, Jeffery Simmons remains as likely the most talented player on the team. He’s due a big contract extension soon, which should be one of the first things the new Titans GM gets done, whoever that may be.
Also making the second team was punter Ryan Stonehouse, who broke the NFL’s oldest single season record this year. His 53.1 yards per punt average was the best that the NFL has ever seen, beating the previous record by nearly two entire yards. Considering how much the Titans punted this season, that’s particularly impressive. The record stood for 82 years.
Stonehouse beat out longtime Titan Brett Kern in the preseason, and delivered on the field all year long.
Here are the full rosters for both All-Pro teams.
