The legendary quarterback of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady, tied the National Football League (NFL) mark by being selected for the fourteenth time to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday night.
Brady joined Peyton Manning, Tony Gonzalez, Bruce Matthews and Merlin Olsen as the only five players in league history with 14 Pro Bowl selections.
But his team, the Patriots, had only two players selected for the game that will be held on January 27 in Orlando (Florida), to be named also cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
The Los Angeles Chargers are in the lead in leading all teams with seven Pro Bowl selections.
Veteran quarterback Philip Rivers, center Mike Pouncey, running back Melvin Gordon, wide receiver Keenan Allen, defensive end Melvin Ingram and safeties Derwin James and Adrian Phillips were selected from that team.
This is the time when the most Chargers players are selected, since 10 players made the trip to the Pro Bowl that took place in Hawaii in 2008.
The Kansas City Chiefs and the Pittsburgh Steelers had six selected each; the New Orleans Saints, the Chicago Bears and the Dallas Cowboys each won five.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees won his 12th Pro Bowl selection, which allows him to tie for ninth in NFL history in the number of trips to that game.
Outstanding stars such as Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes; New York Giants rookie runner Saquon Barkley and Denver Broncos undrafted rookie Phillip Lindsay got their first picks.
