Jets kick returner Andre Roberts was voted to The Associated Press All-Pro first team. He’s the first Jet to make All-Pro first team since Darrelle Revis in 2011.

Roberts led the NFL in kick return yards (1,174), and brought one back 99 yards for a touchdown. He also led the league with 14.1 yards per punt return. Roberts was named to his first Pro Bowl this year.

Safety Jamal Adams was voted to the All-Pro second team. He’s the first Jets safety to get All-Pro recognition since Kerry Rhodes in 2006. Voted the Jets' MVP, Adams led the team in solo tackles (86) and finished second in total tackles (112) and tackles for loss (nine). He also is headed for his first Pro Bowl.

Chicago safety Eddie Jackson and the Chargers’ Derwin James made the first team ahead of Adams.

Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas was named to the second team.
