Four members of the New York Giants and three players on the New York Jets were selected to play in the 2011 Pro Bowl. Among those, three are slated to start the game.
The Giants' right guard Chris Snee, center Shaun O'Hara, safety Antrel Rolle and defensive end Justin Tuck were selected. Snee, who went to the Pro Bowl after the 2008 season, is a starter. O'Hara was limited to just six games because of injury but still snagged a spot as a reserve. He was a Pro Bowl selection in the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Rolle went to the Pro Bowl last year. This will be Tuck's first trip to the NFL's all-star extravaganza.
For the Jets, Nick Mangold will start at center and Darrelle Revis will start for the AFC in the cornerback position. It is the third straight Pro Bowl selection for Mangold and Revis. D'Brickashaw Ferguson is a back up offensive tackle. It's his second trip to the Pro Bowl. All three players received long term contracts in the offseason.
The Atlanta Falcons had the most Pro Bowl selections with seven players including quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Roddy White. The New England Patriots had six players selected. Among them, quarterback Tom Brady and Rutgers product Devin McCourty, a rookie cornerback who has six interceptions.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
