Asked last month if it would be funny if he was selected to a third All-Pro team while being snubbed by the Pro Bowl again, David Bakhtiari replied, “It would be hilarious.”
The hilarious has now happened.
Bakhtiari was named not only to the All-Pro team, but received first team All-Pro honors for the first time in his career.
The honor is determined by a vote of 50 media members of the Associated Press.
Bakhtiari started all 16 games this season, often dealing with injuries.
Bakhtiari was the Packers’ only All-Pro selection this season.
