Antonio Brown was three catches shy of Hines Ward’s team record
Today Antonio Brown joined the Browns’ Josh Gordon on the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) All-AFC team.
Gordon, who led the NFL with 1,646 receiving despite Cleveland’s instability at quarterback, and Detroit’s Calvin Johnson were the wide receivers on PFWA’s All-NFL team.
Brown set a Steelers’ single-season record with 1,499 yards. The fourth-year veteran came up just three catches shy of breaking Hines Ward’s team record for most catches (112) in a season.
Brown made the Pro Bowl as a wide receiver and a punt returner, and his teammates voted him Steelers’ MVP for the second time in the last three seasons.
