The Associated Press' 2013 NFL All-Pro teams were announced on Friday, and Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh both made the first team. Johnson was named a first-team wide receiver with Cleveland's Josh Gordon, while Suh was named a first-team defensive tackle with Tampa Bay's Gerald McCoy.

This is Johnson's third straight year on the All-Pro first team. He was named to the second team back in 2010, and he's been a member of the first team ever since.

For Suh, this is his second career appearance on the first team. He was named to the first team as a rookie back in 2010, and he was on the second team in 2012. Now he's back on the first team after another outstanding season, and according to MLive, this means that the Lions have two players on the first team in the same season for the first time since 1997 (Barry Sanders and Herman Moore).

No Lions players made the All-Pro second team, meaning center Dominic Raiola, right guard Larry Warford and linebacker DeAndre Levy were not recognized by the AP voters.
