Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson just keeps racking up the accolades.
The MVP frontrunner received 704,699 total Pro Bowl fan votes, the most of any player in the NFL. The next closest was Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who took home 539,768 votes.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson are named as Jackson’s backups.
Jackson is one of 12 players for the AFC-leading Ravens named to the Pro Bowl, the highest tally by any team in the league. The 12-man representation ties the mark for most Pro Bowl players on an initial Pro Bowl roster held by the 2007 Dallas Cowboys and 1973 Miami Dolphins.
“This honor is all about my teammates and our coaches, because without them, the success we’ve had as a team wouldn’t be possible,” Jackson said in a release. “I’m also grateful for all the fans who continue to support us and who have helped make this season so special. Ultimately, it’s about winning, and we still have a lot of work to do before we accomplish our biggest goals.”
The New Orleans Saints led the NFC with seven selections, including quarterback Drew Brees, who was named as a backup to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was also named as an NFC Pro Bowler.
The 2020 Pro Bowl will be played on January 26 — one week before the Super Bowl– at 3 p.m. ET at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Between now and then, the rosters will assuredly undergo changes with players withdrawing due to injuries and Super Bowl-bound players being forced to skip the event.
