Jets' Andre Roberts Named to Pro Football Writers of America All-NFL Team

Veteran Returner Earns Another Accolade to Cap Off Career Season 


Jets kick returner Andre Roberts was named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-NFL Team.

Roberts, who was selected to his first Pro Bowl in December, led the NFL in kickoff yards (1,174) and his 1,498 total return yards were fifth-most in franchise history. The nine-year veteran finished second in the league with a 29.4-yard kick return average and became the first Jet since Darrelle Revis in 2011 to make the Associated Press first-team All-Pro earlier this month.

The Citadel product was also named to the PFWA All-AFC team, along with safety Jamal Adams, as a kick and punt returner. Roberts led the league with a 14.1-yard punt return average and finished second with 324 punt return yards.

Adams, who will also represent the Jets at the Pro Bowl at the end of January, led the defense with 13 tackles for loss/no gain, 8.5 tackles for loss and 13 tackles on third/fourth down preventing conversion. The LSU product finished second on the team with 112 tackles, which equals LaRon Landry's 112 total in 2012. The last time a Green & White safety had more tackles was Erik Coleman with 121 in 2005.

The second-year safety was named to the Associated Press second-team All-Pro earlier in the month and is the first Jets safety since Kerry Rhodes to earn an All-Pro selection (2006).
