Fullback C.J. Ham, quarterback Kirk Cousins, linebacker Eric Kendricks, defensive end Everson Griffen and cornerback Xavier Rhodes will now participate in Sunday's all-star game, via the team's official website.
Ham was a logical replacement for San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, who is heading to the Super Bowl. Cousins is coming off arguably the best season of his career. Kendricks was a menace all season and made game-changing plays by the week. Griffen compiled eight sacks and had his second career INT. Rhodes will be the most controversial name on the list, given his overwhelming struggles this season. In what seems likely his final year in Minnesota, the corner was named to his third Pro Bowl to replace Richard Sherman.
»The Green Bay Packers announced wide receiver Davante Adams, defensive lineman Kenny Clark and linebacker Za'Darius Smith were added to the Pro Bowl roster in place of Adams the Falcons' Julio Jones, the Rams' Aaron Donald and the Bears' Khalil Mack, respectively. Adams becomes the first Green Bay wideout to make three consecutive Pro Bowls since Sterling Sharpe.
