Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski Bow Out Of Pro Bowl After AFC Championship Loss


January 26, 2016

In the least shocking New England Patriots news of the week by far, Tom Brady won’t be playing in the Pro Bowl.

Brady, who hasn’t played in a Pro Bowl since 2005, bowed out and was replaced by Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, the NFL announced Monday.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski won’t play in the NFL’s all-star game because of injury, the NFL announced. He was replaced by Cleveland Browns tight end Gary Barnidge.

That leaves five Patriots in the Pro Bowl: linebacker Jamie Collins, defensive end Chandler Jones, cornerback Malcolm Butler, special teamer Matthew Slater and kicker Stephen Gostkowski.

The Pro Bowl will be played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on Jan. 31.
