Peter King changed his vote of Antonio Brown as one of the two wide receivers on his AP All-Pro ballot following the report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette of Brown missing Week 17 due to practice issues instead of an injury.

King voted instead for Michael Thomas over Brown.

"The more I thought about it, the more disgusted I got," wrote King. "There might be some slightly contrarian evidence, but there’s not much debate that Brown petulantly missed multiple practices prior to a game with major playoff implications, a game he could have and almost certainly would have influenced. I could not in good conscience vote for a person who went AWOL for a game of such magnitude. So I erased Brown, typed in Thomas of the Saints, and re-filed my ballot to the AP."
