It was announced earlier today that two New Orleans Saints were voted to the Associated Press All-Pro Team. Wide receiver/return specialist Rashid Shaheed was voted onto the first team and linebacker Demario Davis was voted onto to the second team. This is the 7th consecutive season that the team has had at least one All-Pro selection.

Davis, who just celebrated his 35th birthday yesterday, will join former Saints guard Jahri Evans as only the second Saints player to be selected All-Pro five consecutive times. He finished the season with 121 tackles, 74 solo and 6.5 sacks.

Shaheed, who signed with the Saints in 2022 had 46 catches for 719 yards and 5 touchdowns and 339 punt return yards and one touchdown. He averaged 13.6 yards per return, ranking him 2nd in the NFC and 3rd in the NFL in punt return average. He was also selected as a Pro Bowl starter as a return specialist.
