Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Rashean Mathis was voted to the Associated Press NFL All-Pro Team which was announced Monday. Mathis was the first Jaguar to be named to the first-team since former offensive tackle Tony Boselli in 1999.
Mathis ranked tied for third in the NFL with a team-record eight interceptions. He became the first Jaguars cornerback to be voted to the Pro Bowl as he was the only Jaguar named to this year's Pro Bowl team.
Mathis, who owns the team record with 20 career interceptions, surpassed the previous single-season record of six set by Aaron Beasley (1999) and Marlon McCree (2002). Mathis recorded two interceptions in two different games in 2006 (9/18 vs. Pittsburgh; 11/5 vs. Tennessee).
There were 18 players from the AFC and 10 from the NFC named to the All-Pro squad. Denver's Champ Bailey was the other cornerback named to the team.
