Packers' Adams, Clark and Smith named to the Pro Bowl
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Three Green Bay Packers players have been named to the Pro Bowl roster. WR Davante Adams, DL Kenny Clark and LB Za’Darius Smith will replace players who are unable to participate due to injury.
According to a news release, this marks Adams' third straight trip to the Pro Bowl (2017-19), making him the first Packer WR to make three consecutive Pro Bowls since Sterling Sharpe (1992-94). Despite missing four games due to injury, Adams registered his second career 80-plus-reception season (83 in 2019, 111 in 2018), which is tied for the fourth most in franchise history behind Jordy Nelson (three), Donald Driver (four) and Sharpe (four) according to pro-football-reference.com. He finished 2019 in the top five in the NFL in receptions per game (6.92, No. 4) and receiving yards per game (83.1, No. 5). It was the second straight year Adams finished No. 5 in the NFL in receiving yards per game (92.4 in 2018). The last Packer to finish in the top five in the NFL in that category in back-to-back seasons was Sharpe in 1992-93. He also joined Jones and Mike Evans as the only WRs in the league to finish in the top five both of the last two seasons.
