Quarterback: Tom Brady, New England Patriots
No position player in the modern era has ever been named first-team All-Pro at 40 years old. Brett Favre came close during his brilliant 2009 campaign. No other quarterback has played close to that level at Brady’s age. So why will he be the league’s premier quarterback, one season after Matt Ryan was tabbed as the league’s top QB (and player)? With no LeGarrette Blount, I anticipate the Patriots running less. Brandin Cooks joins the fold, instantly upgrading the wide receiver corps. Most important: a healthy, productive Rob Gronkowski.
Second team: Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
