The 2010 NFL Pro Bowl Rosters were announced on Tuesday night and the Minnesota Vikings have an NFL-high of eight players selected, five of which were chosen to start. The Indianapolis Colts had an AFC-high of six players, five of which were chosen as starters
This year the Pro Bowl will take place a week before the Super Bowl so it’s quite possible we’ll see some changes to the roster. The game will be played on January 31, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. at Land Shark Stadium in Miami. Super Bowl XLIV will be held a week later in Miami as well.
After sending two players to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii last season, the New England Patriots are sending four players to Miami. They are quarterback Tom Brady, wide receiver Wes Welker, offensive guard Logan Mankins and defensive tackle Vince Wilfork. Mankins and Wilfork were chosen as starters for the AFC.
A full look at the rosters after the jump.
