Wide receiver Antonio Brown is the only Steelers player on the Professional Football Writers of America All-AFC team.

The Steelers did not have a player chosen for the PFWA All-NFL team, which also was announced Monday. The Chiefs had three players on that team: running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry and punt returner Dexter McCluster.

The Browns, last in the AFC North with a 4-12 record, placed tackle Joe Thomas and wide receiver Josh Gordon on the All-NFL and All-AFC teams. Browns tight end Jordan Cameron, center Alex Mack and cornerback Joe Haden also made the All-AFC team, which included seven Chiefs players.

The PFWA All-NFL team is one of two recognized by the league.

Brown and safety Troy Polamalu were selected as second-team players on the All-Pro team chosen by the Associated Press, which does not have separate All-NFC and All-AFC teams.

There is no second team on the PFWA All-NFL team.

Brown made 110 catches for a team-record 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns.
