The Associated Press announced their 2012 NFL All-Pro team Saturday, as selected by 50 members of the media.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall and cornerback Charles Tillman received first team honors. They were joined in their position categories by Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. Defensive end Julius Peppers and cornerback Tim Jennings represent Chicago on the second team.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Texans defensive end J.J. Watt were the only players to be unanimously selected, and the San Francisco 49ers received the most selections overall with six. The only NFC North team absent from the first team All-Pro was the Green Bay Packers, though quarterback Aaron Rodgers and outside linebacker Clay Matthews made the cut for second team.
