The Associated Press on Friday announced its annual All-Pro Team for the 2021 NFL season.

And for the first time since 2017, the first-team selections included no Chiefs.

Tight end Travis Kelce and defensive lineman Chris Jones garnered second-team honors.

The 50 members of the voting committee selected Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews over Kelce. Andrews finished the season with 107 catches for 1,361 yards and nine touchdowns, while Kelce totaled 92 catches for 1,125 yards and nine touchdowns.

Kelce has been a first-team All-Pro on three different occasions in his career (2016, 2018, 2020). He and wide receiver Tyreek Hill were first-team selections in 2016 before no Chiefs made the list in 2017.

Jones finished third in the voting (10) behind first-team All-Pro selections Aaron Donald, a unanimous choice, of the Los Angeles Rams and Cam Heyward of the Pittsburgh Steelers (19).

Jones totaled a team-high nine sacks for the Chiefs’ defense, adding 27 tackles and 17 quarterback hits.

The other Chiefs players garnering votes were left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. (1), left guard Joe Thuney (6), rookie center Creed Humphrey (10) and safety Tyrann Mathieu (1).

Mathieu was selected as a first-team All-Pro in 2019 and 2020.

Humphrey enjoyed a stellar rookie campaign and is widely regarded as one of the NFL’s top centers. The voting process reflected that, as he collected the third-most votes behind Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce (21) and Corey Linsley (11) of the L.A. Chargers.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes received no votes this year. Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers (36) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tom Brady (14) were the only two signal-callers who did.
