The Pro Bowl is something I never take for granted, and I’m pretty stoked about it. Each year you just work hard and try to play your very best. To receive recognition for what you do on the field, even if it may not show up in other areas, is awesome.”For the NFC, frequent repeaters include Atlanta WR Julio Jones and C Alex Mack, Dallas tackle Tyron Smith, inside LBs Luke Kuechly of Carolina and Bobby Wagner of Seattle Julian Love Jersey , Arizona CB Patrick Peterson, Rams DT Aaron Donald and Bears LB Khalil Mack.One of the newcomers, Chicago DT Akiem Hicks, sounded overwhelmed by the honor.“I have played the game of football my entire life and this is the greatest accolade I’ve ever achieved,” he said.There will be a brother combination at center for the AFC as Maurkice Pouncey of Pittsburgh is the starter ahead of Mike Pouncey.The Jets, despite a 4-10 record, have three Pro Bowlers in safety Jamal Adams, kicker Jason Myers and return specialist Andre Roberts — all first-timers.Pro Bowl coaching staffs will be from the losing teams in the AFC and NFC divisional playoffs with the best regular-season records.

Veteran defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson signed a one-year deal with the Packers last offseason to rebuild his value.Now, after having his ankle rebuilt, he’s hoping to do it again.Wilkerson told Michael Cohen of that he’s hoping to return to Green Bay for another year after his first season there lasted three games. He suffered a compound fracture of his left ankle http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-darius-slayton-jersey , including ligament damage, in a game at Washington.He’s still in the process of rehabbing after two surgeries to repair the injury, but made it clear he wanted to continue playing.“I still love the game,” he said. “I feel like once I get to that point where I’m questioning myself or I feel like I don’t want to do this, then it’s time to walk away. But I’m still getting up every day rehabbing, working. I got my mindset on what I need to do, what I want to do once I’m able to get to certain parts of my rehab. I still love the game and I still love to play, definitely.”The 29-year-old would prefer to do that in Green Bay, where he was eager to reunite with former Jets coach Mike Pettine last year.“I like it here a lot,�? Wilkerson said. “I came here to prove that I can play at a high level and that was cut short. But that’s how the game goes sometimes. I definitely want to get another shot to show what I can do. . . .“I’m going to speak things into existence and say that we’ll be fine here in Green Bay.”Whether General Manager Brian Gutekunst agrees remains to be seen, but Wilkerson’s ready to try to prove himself all over again.
