Khalil Mack made history, his versatility and relentlessness getting the second-year Oakland Raiders star selected at two positions on the 2015 Associated Press All-Pro team, an NFL first.
Mack drew enough support Friday from a panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league to make the squad at both defensive end and outside linebacker.
Others, including Houston's J.J. Watt last year, have been chosen first team at one position and second at another. Watt was a unanimous pick at defensive end for this season's team, as was Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.
"I do whatever I can to help the team win. I'm a team guy," said Mack, who had 15½ sacks (five in one game), behind only Watt in the league. "Whether it's dropping in coverage or rushing the passer. I can do either. I think they [voters] saw that."
Mack spent just a hair more time on the line, taking 467 snaps as an end and 439 as a linebacker.
Carolina, with an NFL-best 15-1 record, had the most All-Pros with six: Cam Newton, Mike Tolbert, Ryan Kalil, Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis and Josh Norman. New England, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Arizona and St. Louis had two All-Pros each.
One rookie, Seattle kick returner Tyler Lockett, was selected. In all, 15 NFC and 12 AFC players were chosen.
Lions land Quinn as GM
The Detroit Lions agreed to a deal in principle with New England Director of Pro Scouting Bob Quinn to be their general manager. Lions President Rod Wood confirmed the agreement Friday night.
Quinn, 39, joined the Patriots in 2000 as a player personnel assistant and has been with the organization ever since, winning four Super Bowls and climbing up the ranks. He is considered one of Bill Belichick's most trusted front office members.
The Lions have been looking for a GM since firing Martin Mayhew midway through the season.
No word on Bakhtiari
Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari was listed as questionable on the injury report Friday. A final determination on whether he is ready to return to protect Aaron Rodgers' blind side won't be made until after practice Saturday.
Bakhtiari has missed two games with an ankle injury. Rodgers has been hit hard since then, having been sacked 13 times the past two games.
Rodgers has been sacked 46 times this season. Only Josh Sitton has started all 16 games this season. Sitton started at left tackle last week against the Vikings, but Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy intends to move him back to his usual spot at left guard for Sunday's playoff game at Washington.
The San Diego Chargers gave beleaguered coach Mike McCoy a one-year contract extension through 2017 earlier this week, General Manager Tom Telesco said.
The big question remains if McCoy will be coaching in San Diego or Los Angeles, where Chargers chairman Dean Spanos wants to move the team.
