The NFL announced the 2012 Pro Bowl roster Wednesday. Here's the seven Patriots selected.
All are repeat Pro Bowlers from 2011 except for Jerod Mayo, who was last selected in 2010. Mayo said, via Boston.com: âItâs an honor to be recognized by my peers, the coaches and the fans, but itâs more of an honor to be one of seven of my teammates going to Hawaii, since that is a reflection of our overall success,â Mayo said in a statement released by the team.âWeâll all enjoy the recognition tonight with our families and be right back to focusing on the Dolphins in the morning.â
Tom Brady: âIt is flattering to be selected, but I have always considered Pro Bowl recognition as a reflection of the teamâs overall success. I am happy for my many teammates who were selected again this year... One day, I am sure I will have a greater appreciation for individual accomplishments, but this week my focus is simply on our preparations for Miami.â
