2016 NFL Pro Bowl Open Thread: Kyle Long lone Chicago Bear on roster

New, comments

Join us below for live discussion of tonight's NFL Pro Bowl!

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears were initially shut out of the 2016 Pro Bowl (first time since 1998 they didn't have anyone selected) but of course thanks to injuries, "injuries", and the Super Bowl, some spots eventually opened up.

That allowed Kyle Long to get another nod, his third straight since being drafted in 2013.

The Pro Bowl remains a clown show, with Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice 'drafting' players to their teams, but the NFL will still make their money and the players will still get a nice vacation out of the deal.

Long will be playing along side Richie Incognito on Team Rice, and will be protecting quarterbacks Eli Manning and Tyrod Taylor. Rice's full roster can be found HERE.

In case you haven't read it, Sam wrote a great article on the Pro Bowl HERE.

If you're around and watching the Pro Bowl, you can hang out with us here. Kickoff is at 6:00pm.

Have fun!
