Pro Bowl Vikings Split Up By Draft

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

There are now five members of the Minnesota Vikings that will be taking part in the 2016 Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Hawai'i on Saturday. Thanks to yesterday's draft, they've been split up between the two teams.

Thanks to a change adopted a couple of years ago, the Pro Bowl is no longer NFC vs AFC. All of the players that are participating are now selected by the two honorary captains for each team. In this case, those captains are former NFL wide receivers Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice.

Rice wound up with two members of the Vikings on his team, as he selected running back Adrian Peterson and defensive end Everson Griffen during the draft process. The other three Vikings in the game. . .linebacker Anthony Barr, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and safety Harrison Smith. . .all wound up on Team Irvin.

The 2016 Pro Bowl will take place on Sunday, 31 January, at 6:00 PM Central time. The game will be shown on ESPN.

Here, for your viewing pleasure, are the final rosters for both teams.
