Adams earns Pro Bowl selection
Green Bay — Even in a season that fell below expectations, the Green Bay Packers offense sent a pair of players to the Pro Bowl.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver Davante Adams were selected to the rosters announced last week. It’s Rodgers’ seventh Pro Bowl nod. Adams, an injury replacement last year, received his first original selection.
Left tackle David Bakhtiari, center Corey Linsley and defensive lineman Kenny Clark were chosen as alternates, meaning they could appear in the game if any of the original selections at their positions are out because of injury.
Rodgers set an NFL record this season with more than 400 consecutive passes without an interception, a streak that ended in a loss at the Chicago Bears.
Adams had a breakout year, becoming just the third Packers receiver to have 100 catches in a season.
Adams joined Atlanta’s Julio Jones, New Orleans’ Michael Thomas and Minnesota’s Adam Thielen on the NFC roster. Rodgers joined New Orleans’ Drew Brees and Los Angeles’ Jared Goff.
