Dallas tight end Jason Witten made it for the second time.

Up front are Mankins and New Orleans’ Jahri Evans at guard, Miami’s Jake Long and Cleveland’s Joe Thomas at tackle, and center Nick Mangold of the New York Jets. Evans, Thomas and Mangold are repeaters from last season. Long and Mankins are first-timers.

Cundiff and Lechler are joined on special teams by Chicago returner Devin Hester, who also was an All-Pro in 2006 and 2007. This season, Hester’s 17.1-yard punt return average set a record, and he passed Brian Mitchell for career kick return touchdowns with 14.

Along with Reed, making his fifth All-Pro squad, Ngata, Suh and Mayo on defense are ends Julius Peppers and John Abraham; outside linebackers Clay Matthews of Green Bay and James Harrison of Pittsburgh; inside linebacker Patrick Willis of San Francisco; cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha of Oakland and Darrelle Revis of the Jets; and safety Troy Polamalu of Pittsburgh.

Defensive repeaters from 2009 are Willis and Revis.

Polamalu, Peppers and Willis make it for the third time, Abraham, Harrison and Asomugha for the second.

In all, 10 AFC teams and eight from the NFC are represented. Chicago and Atlanta are the only two NFC clubs with two players.
