2018 NFL Pro Bowl Rosters Announced

The NFL announced the 2018 Pro Bowl rosters for the AFC and NFC squads.

Not a ton of surprises really with a lot of familiar faces making another Pro Bowl team. The Steelers led the league with eight selections with the Saints and Eagles topping the NFC squad with six players each. 

A few rookies made the list, with Eagles QB Carson Wentz, Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, Saints CB Marshon Lattimore, Saints RB Alvin Kamara and special teamer Budda Baker named to squads.

A lot of guys nominated like the aforementioned Wentz, Steelers LB Ryan Shazier and others will not be able to appear due to injuries, so more new faces will be named to the teams in the coming weeks.
