Three Pro Foot­ball Hall of Fame play­ers and one of the most dy­namic quar­ter­backs ever to en­ter the NFL were an­nounced as Pro Bowl leg­ends cap­tains Mon­day.

Former run­ning back Terrell Davis and de­fen­sive end Bruce Smith will serve as cap­tains for the AFC, while former cor­ner­back Dar­rell Green and former QB Michael Vick will fill that role for the NFC. The Pro Bowl is sched­uled for 3 p.m. on Jan. 26 at Camp­ing World Sta­dium in Or­lando.

Davis, 47, was part of two Su­per Bowl cham­pi­onship teams with the Den­ver Bron­cos from 1995-2001. Davis, who en­tered the NFL as a sixth-round draft pick, rushed for 7,607 yards and 60 touch­downs.

He was en­shrined the hall in 2017.

Smith played 19 sea­sons in the NFL af­ter the Buf­falo Bills snagged him with the first over­all pick in 1985. He played 15 sea­sons for the Bills be­fore fin­ish­ing his ca­reer with the Wash­ing­ton Red­skins.

Smith, who en­tered the Hall of Fame in 2009, was cred­ited with a lea­guere­cord 200 sacks. Sacks be­came an of­fi­cial stat in 1982.

Green en­tered the NFL as a first-round draft pick of the Red­skins in 1983. He played his en­tire 20-year ca­reer with Wash­ing­ton, earn­ing two Su­per Bowl rings and fin­ish­ing with 54 ca­reer in­ter­cep­tions.

Green was in­ducted into the hall in 2008.

Vick, 39, played for four into teams dur­ing a 13-year ca­reer. Drafted first over­all by the At­lanta Fal­cons in 2001, Vick is the only player in NFL history to pass for more than 20,000 yards (22,464) and rush for more than 5,000 yards (6,109 yards).

He sat out the 2007 and ’08 sea­sons while serv­ing jail time for his role in a dog­fight­ing ring.
