Adams earns Pro Bowl se­lec­tion

Packer Plus - - News - Ryan Wood

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.
