GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - The Green Bay Packers had three players named Wednesday night to the N-F-C team for the Pro Bowl. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was picked as a starter for his conference, while center Jeff Saturday and linebacker Clay Matthews were listed as reserves. A year ago, Green Bay had seven Pro Bowl picks, but that team didn’t have the extensive injuries that this year’s team has been facing. Packers’ Randall Cobb and guard Josh Sitton were named as first alternates, which means they could make it to Hawaii as injury replacements. Matthews was the first Packer to get a Pro Bowl nod in each of his first four seasons in the league. He has a dozen sacks this season. Saturday’s selection appears to be more of a lifetime achievement award. He was replaced at center last week by Evan Dietrich-Smith, but he’s wrapping up a possible Hall-of-Fame career which netted him five Pro Bowls with Indianapolis. The Pro Bowl will be played January 27th in Honolulu. Those who play in the Super Bowl a week later will not be in Hawaii.
