Bakhtiari and Gregg are the only two players who have dealt with the Packers in the past 60 years to receive the All-Pro First Team Honors. Bakhtiari was also voted into his third Pro Bowl tournament last month after playing 758 attack shots on 12 starters this season. He was placed in the injured reserve last week due to a knee injury that ended the season.
Adams, who received 49 first place votes, is the first Packers recipient to receive an All-Pro recognition since Antonio Freeman in 1998. Last season, Pro Bowler quadrupled the Sterling Sharp franchise record for a one-season receptions (115) and tied Sharp is at the team’s singles season TD receptions with 18 despite playing in only 14 matches.
Adams, who had a team spike of 1,374 yards in 2020, is the first player in NFL history to score over 100 receptions and receive 18+ TDs in a single season. He led the NFL in receiving TDs, receiving yards per game (98.1) and receptions per game (8.2), becoming the first NFL player to lead the league in all three categories since Sharpe in 1992.
Linsley also made his debut on the All-Pro 1st team. His first place votes were 18 more than Ryan Kelly, the second-team player, from Indianapolis. The pro in Year 7 started all 13 matches in which he appeared in center and helped the Packers draw for second place in the NFL in bags allowed (21), the fourth lowest number by the Packers in a 16-game season. He was a valuable member of a streak that allowed single- or bag-less bags in the top 13 league matches, and tied for most team history matches (2004), including four bagless matches, the most by Green Bay since 2008 (four).
“This is a well-deserved award,” said LaFleur. “He meant a lot to our football team both on the field, those things are clear, but in the locker room and what a great, respected captain he is. I cannot say enough about his approach, his work ethic and he has made himself a professional player at All -Pro and he’s really happy for it. It’s clear that getting him back is a big boost for us.
Smith started all 16 competitions and tied for fourth in the NFL with 12 bags and third with the four compulsory best failures of his career (mostly by the Packers defender since LB Julius Peppers scored four in 2014).
Pro Bowler twice also led Green Bay and ranked top 10 among NFL players in QB strikes (23, sec) and loss tackles (12, tied for sixth).
Alexander is the first Packers defensive player to receive All-Pro recognition since Ha Clinton-Dix. The Zawiya back in the third year started all 15 matches in which he participated and led the team with 13 defensive passes. He also earned his first Pro Bowl nod this season after scoring 49 tackles (39 singles), sacks, interceptions and forced trips.
“Just to see all of his hard work paying off on the court, I’m so happy for him,” Nickel’s Chandon Sullivan said. “I feel it should have been the first team but this is another discussion. It just raises the bar in our room. We see how well he plays and this is a challenge for us because teams may move away from Ja” and that means that I and how (the King) or someone else might be prosecuted more . So it keeps us alert. “
Left goalkeeper Elgton Jenkins, Adrian Amos and kicker Mason Crosby also received All-Pro votes.
