Arian Foster And Andre Johnson Named To Sporting News All-Pro Team

Need some more proof of the greatness (on one side of the ball) the Texans had last season? They are the only team in the NFL with two All-Pros on offense as the Sporting News’ team was unveiled today.

Running back Arian Foster led the NFL in rushing and was probably a sure bet to take home this honor. But Andre Johnson also turned the trick, this despite playing in only 13 games. The Texans as a whole can keep playing the ‘no respect’ card, but it’s clear that Johnson has plenty of it.

Foster also finished fifth in the voting for Sporting News’ Offensive Player Of The Year. Which proves that, as usual, quarterbacks win every award unless the numbers are crazy. New England’s Tom Brady routed fellow quarterbacks Michael Vick, Phillip Rivers, and Matt Ryan to take the award.
