The entire New England Patriots team is bailing on the Pro Bowl
Seven Patriots were voted to the 2015 Pro Bowl but none of them are going to be there for it.
A whopping seven different New England Patriots were voted to the 2016 Pro Bowl. And not a single one is likely to appear.
The Patriots expected to be playing in the Super Bowl, going into Denver as road favorites before managing to be upset by the Broncos 20-18 in the AFC Championship Game.
Voters put quarterback Tom Brady, tight end Rob Gronkowski, linebacker Jamie Collins, defensive end Chandler Jones, cornerback Malcolm Butler, kicker Stephen Gostkowski and special-teams player Matthew Slater in the Pro Bowl.
Brady was replaced by Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston.
Gronk was replaced by Browns tight end Gary Barnidge.
Collins was replaced by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr.
So there will be not a single Patriots player involved in the 2016 Pro Bowl, even though the Pats put the second-most players of any team (tied with the Seahawks and Cardinals and behind the Panthers) into the postseason exhibition game.
