With one week remaining in the fan voting for the 2016 Pro Bowl, it looks like Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is the only player on the team with a legitimate shot at making it.
According to latest fan voting released by the league on Wednesday, Brown is the second-leading vote-getter at the wide receiver position and the ninth overall. Brown currently trails New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. by a 9,093 votes.

Brown obviously deserves a fourth Pro Bowl selection as he currently has 93 receptions for 1,310 yards and 7 touchdowns with four games remaining in the regular season.
As far as other Steelers players go who are currently in the top-10 in voting at their respective positions, punter Jordan Berry is 5th, fullback Will Johnson is 9th and safety Mike Mitchell is 10th.
Surprisingly, Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward is not a top-10 vote-getter at his position despite him having 43 total tackles and 5 sacks on the season.
The 2016 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 31, 2016 and televised live on ESPN from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be eligible for the Pro Bowl Draft.
The Pro Bowl players will be announced on Tuesday, December 22 live on NFL Network. You can still vote online here.
