NFL Network's official Pro Bowl announcement won't begin for another 10 minutes, but a few names have started making their way out onto Twitter and elsewhere. Interestingly, almost all of them are defensive players.
In the NFC, Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall via @lindsayczarniak), Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh (via Fox Sports Detroit), and Green Bay Packers players Chad Clifton, Clay Matthews, Nick Collins, Charles Woodson, and Greg Jennings (via @jasonjwilde).
Early AFC reps include New York Jets players Darrelle Revis and Nick Mangold (via @thejetsstream), Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee (via @ryanwnst), and Tennessee Titans DE Jason Babin (via @jwyattsports).
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay seemed prepared to announce the names of the Colts Pro Bowlers, but did mention the team had four players selected.
