The 49ers had an impressive regular season, and they're being rewarded for it.
49ers tight end George Kittle was selected as a first-team AP All-Pro, the second All-Pro honor of his career. Last year, he earned second-team honors.
The 26-year-old totaled 1,075 yards receiving with five touchdowns in 14 games this season.
Joining Kittle as All-Pros are teammates DeForest Buckner and Richard Sherman, who made the second team.

Buckner, a defensive tackle, had 33 solo tackles and 28 assists on the season with two forced fumbles.
This will be Sherman's fifth time being selected to the All-Pro team. The star cornerback earned first-team honors from 2012-14, and a second-team selection in 2015 as a member of the Seattle Seahawks.
This season, the nine-year veteran totaled 61 tackles and also was Pro Football Focus' highest-graded cornerback of the decade, with his 94.9 rating.
