Antonio Brown unsurprisingly grabbed the most Pro Bowl votes of any of the Pittsburgh Steelers, finishing in second place among wide receivers in fan voting.
Steelers’ PR man Dom Rinelli posted the results of the fan voting, showing seven Steelers finishing in the top ten. But Brown was the only one in the top five.
Brown finished with over 485,000 votes, only behind Odell Beckham Jr. who garnered over 500,000.
I’m sure many fans would disagree with Ben Roethlisberger and DeAngelo Williams’ 10th place rankings. Williams is 12th in rushing yards and tied for second in touchdowns, with 773 and 8 respectively, despite playing behind Le’Veon Bell for several weeks. Mike Mitchell’s play has also been Pro Bowl worthy though doesn’t have enough name value league wide to get noticed.
The Steelers had five players elected to the Pro Bowl last season: Brown, Bell, Roethlisberger, Maurkice Pouncey, and Lawrence Timmons.
Tom Brady had the most votes of any player with 701,554 narrowly beating out Cam Newton by 486 votes in a very Gore vs Bush type margin.
The 2016 Pro Bowl will be held on January 31st in Honolulu, Hawai. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
