The seven positional players were selected as starters
It is the seventh Pro Bowl selection for Brady (2001, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011), sixth for Waters (2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2011) and fourth for Mankins (2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011), Welker (2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011) and Wilfork (2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011).
Carter, Gronkowski and Slater earned their first Pro Bowl invitations.
Both of the Patriots starting guards were named starters on the AFC Pro Bowl squad. It is the fourth time that Waters will go to the Pro Bowl paired with a starting guard from the same team. Waters and his Kansas City teammate Will Shields were starters in the Pro Bowl in three straight seasons (2004-2006).
