Calvin Johnson and Ndamukong Suh can add All Pro honors to their recent selections to the Pro Bowl.

Both Johnson and Suh were named First-Team All Pro by the Associated Press, which uses 50 ballots from media members who cover the NFL to make up the team.

It's the fourth consecutive All Pro nod for Johnson, who finished the season with 84 receptions for 1,492 yards and 12 touchdowns in 14 games. Johnson also earned his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl invitation last week.

This season, Johnson became the first receiver in NFL history to total 5,000 receiving yards over a three-year span.

He also broke the franchise record for career touchdown catches (66), passing Herman Moore's old mark of 62.

His 329 receiving yards against Dallas in Week 8 was the most in a regulation game in NFL history and second all-time to Flipper Anderson's 336 in 1989 in an overtime win.

Suh earns his second All Pro nod and first since his rookie season in 2010. He joins Tampa Bay's Gerald McCoy on the first team. McCoy was selected one spot after Suh in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Suh finished the year with 49 tackles (nine for loss), 5.5 sacks, one forced fumble and a safety despite facing double teams every time he was on the field.

His 27.5 sacks since 2010 are second only to the Bengals' Geno Atkins (29) among defensive tackles.
