Brandon Lloyd can add All-Pro recognition to his growing list of 2010 accomplishments.
The wide receiver, already in Hawaii for his first Pro Bowl after a career season, has been named a second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press.
Lloyd set career highs in 2010 with 77 catches for a league-leading 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns. The eight-year veteran averaged a 18.8 yards per catch to lead the NFL.
He became the first Bronco to lead the league in receiving yards and just the second player in NFL history to post his first 1,400-yard receiving campaign in his eighth season or later.
Atlanta’s Roddy White and Indianapolis’ Reggie Wayne earned the wide receiver spots on the first team. Kansas City’s Dwayne Bowe and Detroit’s Calvin Johnson joined Lloyd on the second team.
This marks the eighth consecutive season that the Broncos have had at least one representative on the Associated Press NFL All-Pro teams. Lloyd is the first Broncos wide receiver to receive the honor since Rod Smith made the second team in 2001.
Champ Bailey received two votes at cornerback, placing him tied for eighth at the position. The top four vote-getting cornerbacks earned All-Pro recognition.
