Pro Bowl rosters are in: Andy Reid's team has four Chiefs on it

Your 2016 Pro Bowl rosters...

The 2016 Pro Bowl rosters are now set with four Kansas City Chiefs players on one team and one on another. The Hall of Fame Pro Bowl captains this year were former Cowboys star Michael Irvin and former 49ers great Jerry Rice. The head coaches for this year's Pro Bowl teams are Andy Reid (yes, that one).

Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson, who was a Pro Bowl alternate when Luke Kuechly and the Carolina Panthers made the Super Bowl, was selected to Team Irvin. Packers coach Mike McCarthy was going to coach this team but he has called in sick with an illness.

On Team Rice, the Chiefs have LB Tamba Hali, CB Marcus Peters, TE Travis Kelce and S Eric Berry. Is it a coincidence that this is the team that Andy Reid will coach? Four Chiefs on it.

LB Justin Houston was selected to the Pro Bowl but he won't play with a knee injury (I'm actually surprised Tamba is playing because he was banged up, too).

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was the first pick for Team Irvin while Giants QB Eli Manning was the first pick for Team Rice. You would think someone like Tom Brady would be the first pick but he and the rest of the Patriots players declined the Pro Bowl invite. In fact, more players have declined a Pro Bowl invite this year than any other year in history. Not a good sign for the health of the game.

The Pro Bowl will be played in Hawaii at 6 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) on January 31.
