Rodgers among five Packers named to Pro Bowl

Another successful Packers season has been rewarded with some accolades for several players on the roster, as five Packers have been named to the Pro Bowl and seven more have been named alternate selections.

Aaron Rodgers' selection to the NFL's elite list is no surprise. It's the fourth time Rodgers has received the honor. Only Brett Favre (9) received more Pro Bowl nominations among Packers quarterbacks.

Clay Matthews sets a record for Packers linebackers with his fifth Pro Bowl selection in six season. Jordy Nelson gets his first Pro Bowl nod, as John Kuhn and Josh Sitton are headed to the Pro Bowl for the second time in their careers. Seven other Packers players, including Randall Cobb, are Pro Bowl alternates.
