The players who will represent their team and their division at the 2019 Pro Bowl are announced and it includes players from the Minnesota Vikings.
Being named to the Pro Bowl is quite an honor for Minnesota Vikings players in today’s NFL. Not only does it mean they are among the most popular individuals in the league, but many players receive bonuses if they are named to the roster.
This year, there are several Vikings players who deserve to be in the NFL’s version of the All-Star Game, but sometimes some of those who have earned a spot end up not getting in based on lack of name recognition or market size.
Of course, fans of Minnesota have to be hoping that any Vikings players voted into the game are unable to play since it will be held one week before the Super Bowl. The game will be played on Sunday, Jan. 27 and will be broadcast from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida with team captains Jim Kelly, Emmitt Smith, Brian Urlacher, and Demarcus Ware.
Earlier this season, TVA predicted the players Vikings who would make the 2019 Pro Bowl as well as picked five Vikings who could be named to the Pro Bowl for the first time, but now there is no more need for guessing.
Players for the 2019 Pro Bowl were revealed at 6 pm CT on NFL Network and thankfully there were players representing the purple and gold who were named to the NFC team. Here are the Minnesota Vikings players named to the Pro Bowl according to Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune:
- Anthony Barr, linebacker
- Danielle Hunter, defensive end
- Harrison Smith, safety
- Adam Thielen, wide receiver
Congratulations to the members of the Minnesota Vikings who will represent the team as well as their conference at the 2019 Pro Bowl. Their hard work and excellent play have earned them a spot among the NFL’s elite.
