Zach Brown, like his teammate Lorenzo Alexander, was listed as a member of All-Pro second team yesterday.
Typically, only the top few vote-getters are named to the first and second teams, but it seems as though any player who received a vote was technically given, at the very least, a second-team All-Pro distinction this year.
Brown got one vote at linebacker, and he’s one of nine linebackers to be listed on the second-team defense.
Through October, Brown was playing lights out football for the Bills, and although his production and consistency tailed off down the stretch, he still ended the season with 149 tackles, four sacks, four pass deflections, two forced fumbles and one interception.
He had a career-high 17 tackles in Buffalo’s October 2 win over the Patriots in New England, which led to an NFL Defensive Player of the Week award.
Brown, who’s only 27, is an impending unrestricted free agent.
