More Honors Roll in for WR Jones

Another day, another batch of honors for Julio Jones.

The superstar receiver on Tuesday was named to the Sporting News All-Pro team, as voted by NFL players, coaches and executives, marking his second-consecutive appearance on the list. He is one of only 11 players to make the cut in 2014 and 2015.

As of Tuesday, four national media outlets have selected Jones for their All-Pro teams.

Additionally, the 25-year-old was dubbed the second runner-up for Offensive Player of the Year by Pro Football Focus. Antonio Brown, whose PFF grade was only 2.1 points higher than Jones', took first place. Carson Palmer's amazing campaign in Arizona earned him first runner-up.

"Few receivers can take over a game like Jones, and his combination of deep speed, ball skills, and after-the-catch ability makes him special," said Steve Palazzolo, PFF's senior analyst. "Whether separating from man coverage, finding a hole in a zone, or picking up yards on a screen, Jones' versatility makes him a factor in every game he plays."
