2015 NFL All-Pro team: Richie Incognito only Bills player to receive votes

New, comments

The Bills had one player receiving All-Pro votes this season - Richie Incognito - one year after placing two defensive linemen on the first team.

The 2015 NFL All-Pro team has been released, and the only Buffalo Bills player receiving votes was guard Richie Incognito, who did not make the first or second team. Incognito earned eight votes, finishing behind Marshal Yanda (37) and David DeCastro (13) at guard.

Incognito has never been named All-Pro. He's only made the Pro Bowl once, in 2012 with the Miami Dolphins (before the bullying scandal). It's a remarkable comeback, considering the bruising guard was out of football more a year and a half. He is currently a Pro Bowl alternate.

Last season, the Bills placed Mario Williams and Marcell Dareus on the All-Pro team, though neither received votes in 2015. Kyle Williams and Jerry Hughes also received votes a year ago, but failed to register a tally this year as the Bills' defense stumbled and Kyle Williams went on injured reserve.

All-Pro honors are determined by a group of 50 voters from The Associated Press who cover football. Adrian Peterson and J.J. Watt were the only unanimous selections, while Khalil Mack made the squad at two different positions, a first in All-Pro history.
