GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Three Green Bay Packers have been named to the Pro Bowl.
Linebacker Clay Matthews earned his fourth career selection Wednesday and became the first Packer to earn Pro Bowl recognition in each of his first four seasons in the NFL. He becomes the second linebacker in Packers history to be named to the Pro Bowl four times, joining Bill Forester.
Matthews leads the team with 12 sacks, despite missing four games because of injury.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers received the third Pro Bowl selection of his career. Rodgers also was named a starter for the NFC squad for the second consecutive season.
Center Jeff Saturday earned his sixth career Pro Bowl bid and first as a Packer. Saturday was named to the Pro Bowl five times with the Indianapolis Colts.
Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb and Guard Josh Sitton both are first alternates on the Pro-Bowl Squad.
