Created in 1992 by longtime NFL writer Larry Weisman as a tribute to the unsung heroes on the gridiron, the All-Joe Team spotlights at least one player for every team that has never been selected to the Pro Bowl.
The team’s second leading receiver this season was rookie tight end
His total is 30 shy of Marvin Harrison’s NFL record, to tie him for 17th all-time with Denver Bronco Rod Smith (2001). He is seventh on the list among active players.
Garçon was selected as a Pro Bowl alternate this season, but was passed over in the final roster changes for Arizona Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald, who had 31 fewer receptions and 392 fewer yards this season.
Last year, Redskins running back
In 2011, special teams ace Lorenzo Alexander was selected to the All-Joe Team after leading the NFL in special teams tackles with 21. He was selected to his first Pro Bowl with the Redskins in 2012, again leading the NFL in special teams tackles with 30.
Pierre Garçon looks to follow in the path of recent teammates, earning a spot in the Pro Bowl the year after his All-Joe selection.
