All-Pro Recognition for Long

Offensive tackle Jake Long was the only Dolphins player selected to the AFC Pro Bowl team, and he also was the only Miami representative when The Associated Press All-Pro teams were revealed on Thursday.

Long earned a spot on the second team along with Tennessee's Michael Roos, with the first team being comprised of Cleveland's Joe Thomas and Denver's Ryan Clady.

The AP teams, selected by a vote of 50 writers and broadcasters, also agreed with the Pro Bowl selection of Baltimore's Le'Ron McClain over the Dolphins' Lousaka Polite. McClain earned AP second-team recognition behind first-team choice Leonard Weaver of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Among former Dolphins, New England wide receiver Wes Welker was a first-team choice, while St. Louis punter Donnie Jones made the second team.

The Dolphins also had one second-team selection in 2008, that being linebacker Joey Porter.

The last time the Dolphins had an AP All-Pro first-team choice was 2006 when both Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas earned that distinction.
