Although the Green Bay Packers didn't have a player voted to the starting team of the Pro Bowl this season, they can boast about their All-Pro left tackle for the second year in a row.

Packers starting left tackle David Bakhtiari was named a second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press after receiving 10 votes from the 50-member AP panel.

Bakhtiari took to Twitter after the announcement to poke fun at the fact he had earned the more highly regarded honor of being named to the All-Pro team for the second year in a row, after being snubbed for Pro Bowl honors.

While not as widely referenced or highly regarded as the Associated Press honor, Bakhtiari made the Pro Football Focus All-Pro team as well:

No other Packers made the first or second All-Pro teams, but two former Green Bay defensive backs earned second-team honors: cornerback Casey Hayward of the Los Angeles Chargers and safety Micah Hyde of the Buffalo Bills.
