2013 Pro Bowl rosters: NFC North to be well represented in Hawaii

Tom Lynn

The Bears lead a division that is all over the NFC Pro Bowl roster.

The Chicago Bears will be well represented at the 2013 Pro Bowl in Hawaii, with five players being named to the NFC roster. But they will be amongst a host of other NFC North talent from division foes in the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions.

Green Bay will be sending three players to Hawaii, with Aaron Rodgers selected as the starting quarterback and center Jeff Saturday backing up starting center Max Unger of Seattle. On the defensive side of the ball, outside linebacker Clay Matthews made the Pro Bowl for the fourth time in his first four years -- he'll be there backing up Aldon Smith and DeMarcus Ware.

Minnesota is naturally led by Adrian Peterson, who was an easy choice as starting running back, and he'll be joined in the backfield by fullback Jerome Felton. On the defensive side, Jared Allen will be in Hawaii backing up Jason PIerre-Paul and Chicago's Julius Peppers. Those three Vikings will be accompanied by Blair Walsh, who is the NFC's placekicker.

The Lions, meanwhile, are represented solely by Calvin Johnson, who headlines the NFC's wide receivers. That sole selection was expected for a team that has disappointed so far in 2012.
