The Associated Press released their 2020 All-Pro list on Friday, with two members of the Miami Dolphins finding their names on the list. On the first team listing, cornerback Xavien Howard and kicker Jason Sanders were both included. On the second team, wide receiver Jakeem Grant landed as the punt returner.

Howard, a second-round pick by Miami in the 2016 NFL Draft, led the NFL with 10 interceptions this year, the first time a player reached double-digit interceptions since Antonio Cromartie had 10 in 2007. He was selected to his second Pro Bowl this year as well.

Sanders converted 36 of 39 field goal attempts this year, as well as a perfect 36-for-36 on extra points. His 92 percent field goal rate included 12-of-14 from 40-49 yards and eight-of-nine from 50 or more yards.

Grant returned 29 punts this season for 330 yards (11.4 yards per return average), with a touchdown. He saw elevated playing time as a wide receiver throughout the year as injuries mounted in the position group for the Dolphins. He caught 36 passes for 373 yards, both career highs, with a touchdown.
