The Green Bay Packers had seven players named to the 2020 NFC Pro Bowl team on Monday.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers headlines the squad as the starting quarterback. It marks the ninth Pro Bowl selection of his career, tying Brett Favre and the late Forrest Gregg for the most Pro Bowl selections as a Packer. Rodgers leads the league in passer rating (118.0), passing touchdowns (40) and fewest interceptions thrown (four – min. 350 pass attempts).
Davante Adams was voted to his fourth straight NFC Pro Bowl squad, making him only the second Packers WR to earn four-plus consecutive Pro Bowls. James Lofton made six straight appearances from 1980-85. Adams leads the league in receptions per game (8.2) and receiving yards per game (98.8) and ranks No. 2 in receiving TD’s with 14. He posted those numbers despite missing 2+ games because of injury.
David Bakhtiari earned his third trip to the Pro Bowl and his second straight as an original selection. He’s joined by fellow offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins, who earned his first selection. Jenkins became the Packers first offensive lineman to start a game at guard, center and tackle in the same season since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. [Read more…]
