Bears edge rusher Robert Quinn, linebacker Roquan Smith and returner Jakeem Grant were honored as second-time All-Pro selections, the Associated Press announced Friday.

Quinn had 18.5 sacks in the 2021 campaign, the most in a single season in Bears franchise history. He surpassed Hall of Fame pass rusher Richard Dent with his 18th sack during a game on Jan. 2.

Smith posted a career-high 163 combined tackles, the second-most in Bears history in a single season. He also added 12 tackles for a loss, three sacks and an interception return for a touchdown.

Grant averaged 11.9 yards per punt return and 23.4 yards per kickoff return. He returned a punt for a 97-yard touchdown during the Bears' loss to the Packers on Dec. 12. The Bears acquired Grant from the Dolphins in a trade in October.

The Packers, Colts, Cowboys, Rams and Ravens led the way by having three players apiece earn first-team All-Pro honors.
