For the first time since 2011, the Jets have a player to be named to the AP All-Pro first team.
Kick returner Andre Roberts became the first Jet to receive that honor since Darrelle Revis when he was named as a cornerback.
The 30-year-old Roberts led the league with 1,174 kick return yards and was one of five players to return a kickoff for a touchdown. Only he and Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant returned both a kickoff and a punt for a touchdown in 2018.
Roberts, who was also selected to the Pro Bowl, returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown in New York's Week 16 loss to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
Roberts began the season with a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown in the Jets' season-opening 48-17 win over the Lions, however the Bears' Tarik Cohen was named to the All-Pro first team as a punt returner given he finished with a league-best 411 punt return yards. Roberts finished second with 324 punt return yards.
Roberts averaged 29.4 yards per kickoff return (second in the NFL) and 14.1 yards per punt return (first). He also finished the regular season with 10 catches for 79 yards and a touchdown.
Jets safety Jamal Adams was named to the AP All-Pro second team, losing out to the Bears' Eddie Jackson and the Chargers' Derwin James. He totaled 115 combined tackles, 3.5 sacks, one interception, three forced fumbles and 12 passes defensed in his second season since being the No. 6 pick.
