KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce’s record-setting season is earning even more recognition.

Kelce, who re-established the single-season record for receiving yards among tight ends this season, was a unanimous choice for the Associated Press’ All-Pro team announced Friday.

Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill and safety Tyrann Mathieu joined Kelce on the All-Pro first team.

Kelce, who is playing in his eighth NFL season, caught 105 passes for 1,416 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. It’s the third time Kelce was named to the All-Pro first team. He was previous elected in 2016 and 2018.

Hill’s selection is also the third time he’s made the All-Pro first team after previously being selected in 2016 and 2018. Hill finished the 2020 regular season with 87 catches for 1,276 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Mathieu’s selection is the second time he’s made first team All-Pro, having also earned the honor in 2015. Mathieu played in 15 games this season, during which he collected six interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and defensive lineman Chris Jones were named to the All-Pro second team.
