Matthews, Rodgers, Sitton make Pro Bowl for Packers

Posted: Updated:

The Green Bay Packers have three players on the initial Pro Bowl roster: linebacker Clay Matthews, quarterback Aaron Rodgers and guard Josh Sitton.

The league announced the selections Tuesday, and the Packers representatives were not a surprise. This is the sixth honor for Matthews in seven NFL seasons, tied with Reggie White for the second-most by a defensive player in team history behind Willie Wood's eight.

Rodgers was picked for the fifth time, and Sitton was selected for the third time.

For the third straight year, the Pro Bowl team was picked without respect to the two conferences. Teams will be drafted four days before the annual All-Star game takes place Jan. 31 in Hawaii.
