AP and CP named to NFL All-Pro teams


Opposing defenses can't stop him on the field, and we can't stop posting positive stories about him.

His name is Cordarrelle Patterson and all he does is score touchdowns and win awards.

His latest award is a big one, as he was named to the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro first-team as a kick returner, the league announced Friday.

Patterson is the only Viking on the first-team. Running back Adrian Peterson was named to the All-Pro second-team.

The All-Pro teams are selected by a national panel of 50 media members.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was the only unanimous vote, according to Yahoo! Sports.

As NFL.com puts it, "the Pro Bowl is for the best players in the NFL" and the All-Pro team "is for the best of the best."

Patterson was named a Pro Bowl replacement for Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown while Peterson was voted on to the original Pro Bowl roster. It's a bit confusing considering Patterson is a first-team All-Pro and Peterson isn't.

We profiled the amazing season Patterson had here and here.
