NEW YORK (AP) – Lions receiver Calvin Johnson and Vikings defensive end Jared Allen are the leading vote getters for The Associated Press 2011 NFL All-Pro Team, each falling one vote short of being unanimous choices.

Johnson and Allen each received 49 votes Friday from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. It is the fourth All-Pro team for Allen, who led the league with 22 sacks, one-half short of the record. Johnson makes it for the first time after hauling in 96 catches for a 17.5-yard average and scoring 16 touchdowns.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers made the team for the first time, easily beating Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints. Rodgers led the Green Bay Packers to a league-best 15-1 record this season, after taking them to the Super Bowl title last February.
