2018 NFL Pro Bowl selections, snubs for all 32 teams


The usual suspects — Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Antonio Brown and Von Miller, to name a few — are in. But there were a few surprises on the 2018 Pro Bowl rosters — 88 of the NFL’s best players from the 2017 season — that were released Tuesday night. NFL Nation reporters have compiled Pro Bowl summaries for all 32 teams.

The Pro Bowl will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, on Jan. 28. It will be televised live at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and WatchESPN, and it will be simulcast on ABC.

Patrick Peterson, one of four Cardinals players picked this season, has made the Pro Bowl in each of his seven seasons in the NFL. Another notable selection: Rookie Budda Baker made the team as a special-teamer. Read more.

Julio Jones and Alex Mack made the roster, but second-year linebacker Deion Jones did not. The reigning NFC defensive player of the week is sixth in the league with 118 total tackles. Read more.

The Ravens had three players named to the roster, all of whom are leaders for a defense that has produced three shutouts. It marks the Ravens’ 12th straight season with at least three Pro Bowl selections. Read more.

A strong candidate to earn NFL defensive rookie of the year honors, Tre’Davious White did not make the Pro Bowl. His four interceptions are tied for fourth in the NFL among cornerbacks. Read more.

The Panthers had one player named to the Pro Bowl — Luke Kuechly. He’s still a tackling machine. For the fifth time in six seasons he leads the team in tackles with 107. Read more.

No Bears made the Pro Bowl, including Jordan Howard, who ranks fourth in the NFL in rushing with 1,069 yards. Read more.

Geno Atkins and A.J. Green are in. Though this hasn’t been Green’s best season, he is sitting at 980 yards and eight touchdowns and has a chance for the sixth 1,000-yard season of his career. Read more.

With Joe Thomas injured, the winless Browns had no players selected to the Pro Bowl, but they do have two alternates — and one will certainly play in the game. Read more.

The Cowboys had four players selected to the Pro Bowl, including three offensive linemen, but their punter was snubbed. Read more.

Three-time Pro Bowl pick Chris Harris Jr. should have added a fourth to his résumé, as he is still one of the league’s most distinctive players because of his ability to line up either in the slot or on the outside. Read more.

By making the Pro Bowl combined with having more than five interceptions, Darius Slay picked up another $550,000 in base salary for 2018. Read more.
