Yesterday, Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, and Kenny Clark were all named to the NFL Pro Bowl. It is the tenth time Rodgers has been named, fifth time for Adams, and second time for Clark. In addition, Rashan Gary, Cory Bojoquez, and Rasul Douglas were named as alternates. De’Vondre Campbell, who is having arguably the best season by a middle linebacker, was snubbed.
Davante Adams Joins a Legendary List
With his 10th Pro Bowl selection, Aaron Rodgers passed Brett Favre for most Pro Bowls by a quarterback in team history. However, it was Davante Adams who did something that neither quarterback, and no Packers quarterback, has ever done. He made the Pro Bowl for the fifth straight season.
According to Daire Carragher of Game on Wisconsin and Packer Report, Adams is just the eighth player in team history to make five straight Pro Bowls:
This season, Adams has 96 receptions for 1,248 yards and eight touchdowns. He has moved into second place on the Packers’ all-time list of reception touchdowns and is close to entering the top five of receiving yards.
Aaron Rodgers Has Made Four Straight Pro Bowls
With his 2021 Pro Bowl nomination, Aaron Rodgers has been named to the last four Pro Bowls. The last time he did not make the Pro Bowl was in 2017 when a broken collar bone limited him to seven games. He had made the Pro Bowl in each of the three seasons prior to that. In fact, from 2011-2021, there are only two seasons in which Aaron Rodgers was not named to the Pro Bowl, and each of them were seasons in which he got hurt.
