Jaylon Johnson named second-team NFL All-Pro


After being voted to the Pro Bowl last month, Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson received another prestigious honor Friday when he was named Associated Press second-team NFL All-Pro.

"Making All-Pro is just another example of God's work that he's done through me," Johnson said. "Giving me the ability and strength to perform the way I did this year and to have the favor to receive this prestigious award is truly a blessing.

"Thank you to all of my teammates, coaches and staff for playing a huge role in my success and helping me grow to this point."

Johnson started all 14 games he played this season. The 2020 second-round pick from Utah tied for the team lead with a career-high four interceptions, one of which he returned 39 yards for a touchdown, and also recorded 36 tackles and 10 pass breakups.

In four seasons with the Bears, Johnson has started all 53 games he's appeared in, registering 161 tackles, five interceptions, 41 pass breakups, four tackles-for-loss, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

Johnson was selected second-team All-Pro at cornerback along with the 49ers' Charvarius Ward behind first-teamers DaRon Bland of the Cowboys and Sauce Gardner of the Jets.

The NFL All-Pro team is chosen by a national panel of 50 media members. First-place votes are worth three points, while second-place votes are worth one.

Johnson received 15 first-place votes and 16 second-place votes. With 61 points, he finished 12 points behind Gardner for the second and final spot on the first team.

Other Bears players who received votes were receiver DJ Moore (6 points), linebacker T.J. Edwards (5), slot cornerback Kyler Gordon (1), kicker Cairo Santos (1) and long-snapper Patrick Scales (1).
