Lions among 3 teams shut out of All-Pro voting; six former players evacuated by Quinntricia earned votes

Lions among 3 teams shut out of All-Pro voting; six former players evacuated by Quinntricia earned votes

ALLEN PARK -- The Detroit Lions' roster was decimated by the previous regime. On Friday, we got another reminder of it.

114 players who drew votes for the Associated Press All-Pro teams were largely non-membered this season. Detroit was among only three clubs shut out from the process, joining the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants.

Six former Lions players were removed, traded, or otherwise resigned from the previous regime, which would no longer compete with other teams, including Safety Quandre Diggs (Seahawks), cornerback Darius Slay (Eagles), punter Sam Martin (Broncos), kick returner Andre Roberts (Chargers), and special teams Miles Killebrew (Steelers) and Nick Bellore (Seahawks).

Slay and Diggs are among the most highly-profile departures from the Quinntricia era. They were home-grown defensive backs who became two of Detroit's best players, before both were traded due to personality issues with former head coach Matt Patricia. Both have now made back-to-back Pro Bowls, but both have earned All-Pro votes this season.

Jack Fox, the Lions' successor, did a good job of replacing Martin, but his net punting average was down a bit this season. Fox earned second-team All-Pro honors, but did not earn any votes this season.

There were five unanimous selections this season: Rams receiver Cooper Kupp, Packers receiver Davante Adams, Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, Steelers edge rusher T.J. Watt, and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
