The Green Bay Packers, seemingly so loaded with talent after winning the Super Bowl two years ago, had only three players selected to the Pro Bowl this season, and now the only one who will make it to Hawaii wasn't even a starter in the teams playoff loss last weekend. According to the Dallas Cowboys website, Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has joined quarterback Aaron Rodgers in sitting out the Jan. 27 Pro Bowl. Dallas linebacker Anthony Spencer will take the place of Matthews, who has been selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his four seasons. Aging Packers center Jeff Saturday, who made the Pro Bowl on reputation after years of snapping the ball to Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, is still on to make the trip to Hawaii. He was benched late in the year for poor play and is unlikely to be back with the Packers in 2013. Green Bay's coaching staff will lead the NFC team for the second straight year. Matthews, 26, had 13 sacks in only 12 games this season and battled a nagging hamstring injury through most of the second half of the year. Rodgers dropped out of the Pro Bowl earlier this week after admitting he failed his postseason physical due to ankle and knee injuries. Spencer, making his first Pro Bowl appearance, had career-high 11 sacks and will join Cowboys tight end Jason Witten in Hawaii. Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware had been named to the Pro Bowl but is being replaced by Chad Greenway of the Vikings after pulling out with a shoulder injury.
