Whose team did the five Chicago Bears Pro Bowl players end up on?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

There's no more AFC vs NFC in the Pro Bowl. This year it's all about legendary Hall Of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders picking their teams to battle it out on Sunday in the Pro Bowl at 6pm Central, live from Hawaii on NBC. Here's where each Chicago Bears player ended up.

Are you going to watch the Pro Bowl?

It draws solid ratings every year, but everyone complains about the game and vows not to watch it.

The new Pro Bowl pick 'em format featured Jerry Rice selecting for "Team Rice", and Deion Sanders picking for "Team Sanders", and as expected the five Chicago Bears elected to participate were split up.

Day one of the Pro Bowl Draft wasn't televised, and it featured players at positions that apparently weren't sexy enough for live TV. The offensive linemen, special teamers, and defensive tackles went on day one.

Chicago rookie guard Kyle Long was assigned to Team Sanders on Tuesday. If you're wondering what it means to be assigned, my best guess is he was the last pick of his position.

Day two had the full NFL Network coverage because it featured the so-called skill players.

The first Chicago Bear off the board on day two was 2nd year wideout Alshon Jeffery, who went to Team Rice in the 6th round.

Fellow wide receiver Brandon Marshall was the next Bear off the board, in the 16th round, also to Team Rice. After being passed over by Deion Sanders on numerous occasions, Marshall quipped to Sanders that, "You couldn't guard me," and "Them DBs you picked, they're not gonna be able to guard me."

In the 19th round, Chicago running back Matt Forte also went to Team Rice, giving Jerry the trifecta of Chicago offensive skilled players.

In the 20th round, corner back Tim Jennings was assigned to Team Sanders. So at some point we can expect the 5'8" Jennings to be matched up on either the 6'4" Marshall or the 6'3" Jeffery.
