2013 NFL All-Pro Team: Peppers, Marshall, Tillman, and Jennings get nod for Chicago Bears

Norm Hall

The 2013 NFL All-Pro teams have been announced, and the Chicago Bears have four players make the rosters.

Each year, the Associated Press has a panel of 50 NFL writers who vote on All-Pro selections, and the Chicago Bears have some names that won't surprise anyone.

1st team selections:

Wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who set multiple single-season records for the Bears in his first season with the team, was the lone offensive selection for Chicago.

Cornerback Charles Tillman had one of the best seasons of his career, and gets his first ever All-Pro nod.

2nd team selections:

Defensive end Julius Peppers gets his sixth All-Pro selection (2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012).

Corneback Tim Jennings, who was in danger of losing a roster spot in 2011, led the league in interceptions in 2012, and adds his first All-Pro selection of his career.

Other Chicago Bears receiving votes:

Defensive tackle Henry Melton received two votes, which tied him for 6th at that position. Linebacker Lance Briggs received one vote for his position. Briggs was a previous selection at linebacker in 2005, 2006, and 2009.

-----------------------

To no surprise, the top vote-getter for the NFL on offense was Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. A year ago, he had complete knee reconstruction, and this season came close to breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record. Kudos to AP.

Also a unanimous selection, defensive end J.J. Watt for the Texans. He was an absolute monster in 2012, wreaking havoc on opposing offenses all season long.
