EAGAN, Minn. – The Pro Football Writers of America organization has recognized Justin Jefferson for his outstanding 2022 season.
Jefferson was named to the PFWA All-NFL Team and All-NFC Team, the organization announced Monday.
The Vikings receiver racked up career highs in receptions (128) and yards (1,809) and caught eight touchdowns during Minnesota's 13-4 campaign. Not to mention the multiple records he broke, including those previously held by Hall of Famers Randy Moss (Vikings single-season yards) and Cris Carter (Vikings single-season receptions). Jefferson's receptions and yards led the NFL in 2022.
Jefferson was joined on PFWA's All-NFL Team by Dolphins receiver Tyreek Hill. Jefferson and A.J. Brown (Eagles) were tabbed as the All-NFC wideouts.
This marks the third offseason honor Jefferson has received this year, having also been named First-Team All-Pro by The Associated Press and to his third straight Pro Bowl.
While this is Jefferson's first time selected to the All-NFL or All-NFC team, he was named to PFWA's 2020 All-Rookie team.
Eight repeat selections and 12 first-time selections were included this year as part of the 2022 All-NFL team, which is listed in full below.
