Just one year removed from being entirely shut out in All Pro voting, Julio Jones has been named to the Associated Press All Pro team.

Jones is a first-team All Pro alongside Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown and Jones had two of the best seasons in NFL history. Jones finished the 2015 season with 1,871 yards and eight touchdowns on 136 receptions. Brown also had 136 receptions for 1,834 yards. Brown and Jones are tied behind Marvin Harrison for the most receptions in a single season. Harrison's record is 143.

Jones has also been selected to the Pro Bowl for his performance in 2015. This is the third time Jones has been acknowledged in this way.

Jones was one of 15 NFC players to receive first team All Pro honors.

Two other Falcons received votes, though not enough to make first team. Devonta Freeman, who was selected to the Pro Bowl, received just three All Pro votes. Patrick DiMarco received 14 votes, placing him behind the first team fullback, Mike Tolbert, with 31 votes.

Congratulations to Jones for this well-deserved acknowledgement after a fantastic season.
