Buffalo Bills nickel cornerback Taron Johnson was named second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press, which utilizes a 50-member panel to select players at the end of each regular season. This is Johnson’s first such honor of his six-year NFL career.

Johnson (15 first-team/7 second-team) finished second in voting behind Trent McDuffie (16/12) of the Kansas City Chiefs.

During the 2023 NFL season, Johnson made a career-high 98 tackles (72 solo), plus three tackles for loss, two quarterback hits, one sack, eight pass defenses, three forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery.

In total, 11 Buffalo Bills players received votes, but no one other than Taron Johnson received enough to be selected either first- or second-team All-Pro.

Thad Brown tweeted the breakdown for those Bills who received votes:

  • QB Josh Allen (1/4)
  • WR Stefon Diggs (0/1)
  • LT Dion Dawkins (2/5)
  • IDL Ed Oliver (0/4)
  • LB Terrel Bernard (1/3)
  • LB Tyrel Dodson (0/2)
  • CB Rasul Douglas (0/5)
  • NCB Taron Johnson (15/7)
  • PR Dionte Harty (2/1)
  • ST Siran Neal (1/0)
  • LS Reid Ferguson (1/1)

Interestingly, Josh Allen only received one first-team All-Pro vote, which came from Aaron Schatz, who wrote about his selection process and shared in the tweet embedded below.

Last season, safety Jordan Poyer was named first-team All-Pro, the first of his career.
