Braxton Berrios has a reason to party.
While vacationing in Mexico with his girlfriend, Sophia Culpo, the Jets kick returner learned Friday that he had been named a first-team All-Pro by The Associated Press. Berrios led the NFL with 30.4 yards per kickoff return and had 102 yards for a touchdown in a win over the Jaguars.
Culpo posted a video of Berrios staring into space on his Instagram account with the caption, “Someone is in shock.” He also wrote on his Twitter account, “What an amazing honor, I really have no other words than Thank you to my teammates who made this possible, I couldn’t have done it without you guys!!”
Berrios received 27 of 50 first-place votes. He also received two first-place votes as a punt returner, but that spot went to the Ravens’ Devin Duvernay. After a well-timed push to end the season as a receiver, Berrios will become a free agent in March.
The Jets’ last first-team All-Pro was safety Jamal Adams in 2019. Maybe they’re becoming a kickback factory, as Andre Roberts also earned top honors for the Jets at that time. position in 2018. The Giants haven’t had an All-Pro since safety Landon Collins and defensive tackle Damon Harrison were selected in 2016.
