GREEN BAY – Packers kickoff returner Keisean Nixon has been named to the NFLPA All-Pro team, as voted on by active players.
The fifth-year cornerback led the NFL with 782 kickoff return yards this season, while his 26.1-yards per return was the highest among qualifying returners.
Nixon's 26 returns for 20-plus yards were nine more than any other returner, while his two 40-plus-yard returns tied for the league lead.
Per the NFLPA, only active NFL players can vote, and they get only one vote. If a player missed five or more games as of Week 15, then they are ineligible. This is to ensure that we are choosing the best players who had the most impact this season. Being available counts.
Players cannot vote for themselves or for their own teammates. Players vote for the position group they play in and line up against.
