Peyton Manning has equalled Hall of Famer Otto Graham's quarterback record of seven entries into the Associated Press NFL All-Pro team, after he was named the only unanimous choice of 2013, reports

The Denver Broncos quarterback was chosen on all 50 ballots from media members who regularly cover the NFL, following another standout season that saw him set a number of records, with 55 touchdown passes and 5,477 yards through the air.

The 37-year-old still has some way to go before breaking the record for most All-Pro appearances at any position, with Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice having featured on 10 separate occasions.

However, it's still a time for celebration for Manning, who follows up his inclusion in 2003, 04, 05, 08, 09 and 2012 with another accolade this year.

"I think it's well documented that this is the second chapter of my career, and didn't know what to expect off that injury and new team, new players and new physical state after an injury," said Manning, who missed the entire 2011 campaign with several neck injuries.

"So I had no idea what to expect, and I've put a lot of time and a lot of hard work in to it. But I've received a lot of help along the way from coaches and trainers and strength coaches and teammates. So I'm very grateful."

The four-time league MVP - who never missed a pro start before 2011 - was joined in the All-Pro team by Broncos team-mate Louis Vasquez.
