Jets' Ferguson named to Pro Bowl
Packers rookie linebacker Clay Matthews was added later Friday to the NFC squad, replacing Bears LB Lance Briggs. He is the first Packers rookie to earn a Pro Bowl selection since receiver James Lofton in 1978.
Matthews finished the season with 58 tackles, a franchise rookie record of 10 sacks, three fumble recoveries, one forced fumble, six passes defensed and a defensive touchdown.
The Pro Bowl will be played Jan. 31 at Dolphin Stadium in Miami.
