Brown, who was previously selected to the Pro Bowl and was an Associated Press second-team All-Pro selection, was named to the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) All-AFC team.
Brown, the Steelers 2013 MVP, was selected at receiver along with Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon.
Brown finished the year with a Steelers single season record 1,499 yards receiving. He added a career-high 110 receptions, second in Steelers history for receptions in a season and just two behind Ward who had 112 in 2002.
He had at least five receptions and 50 receiving yards in all 16 games to become the first player in NFL history to accomplish that in a 16 game regular season.
