Pro Bowl Voting: Tom Brady Leads Everyone; Steelers, Ravens Dominate Defense

Two weeks ago New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was third among all NFL players in Pro Bowl voting. Last week he moved up to second and now, the final vote, he is the top vote-getter for the 2011 Pro Bowl. This is counting the fans vote on NFL.com, which represents one-third of the Pro Bowl voting process with the other two being the coaches and players vote.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster is the top running back and his teammate, WR Andre Johnson, is the top receiver. San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates topped the fan vote at tight end despite his late season injury.

Here's the amazing part of the fan voting: seven of the eight defensive players chosen are from the Pittsburgh Steelers or Baltimore Ravens. Oakland Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha is the lone player not from Pittsburgh or Baltimore. That shows what fans think of those two teams.

Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey and Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski were third and fourth in voting for all rookies.

The NFL will announce the final results including the coaches and players voting on Dec. 28.
