Pro Bowl 2015: Rosters to be announced for NFL all-star game
The Pro Bowl teams won’t be drafted until late January, but the full roster of Pro Bowl selections will be announced Tuesday.
The 2015 Pro Bowl is currently a distant afterthought for most players with the regular season finale and postseason races currently at the forefront. Players will, however, find out if they made the all-star roster with Pro Bowl selections set to be announced on Tuesday at 8 p.m. during a special edition of Total Access on NFL Network.
Like last season, there will not be AFC and NFC rosters. Instead, all of the Pro Bowl selections will be announced on Tuesday and the rosters will be drafted into two teams on Jan. 21. Michael Irvin and Cris Carter will serve as team captains this season. The roster itself will also change substantially in the coming weeks with injured players and players on Super Bowl bound teams pulling out. A total of 86 players will be selected on the initial roster.
While a number of spots are up for grabs, a few players appear to be locks to be selected. Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are regulars at this point. It’s also safe to say J.J. Watt will be among the selections. There is stiff competition at a few positions including running back and wide receiver.
The 2015 Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 25 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona. Here is a full rundown of how to watch the selection show.
