Quinn will serve as Pro Bowl captain

Special to the News-DemocratJanuary 17, 2014 

Rams defensive end Robert Quinn has been named one of the player captains for the 2014 Pro Bowl in Honolulu.

He'll be joined by Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

Quinn and Brees will be paired together, while Watt and Charles also will work as a team.

The four captains, which are comprised of the top two leading vote getters on offense and defense from the teams that did not reach the conference championship games, will help determine the rosters for the two teams during the first-ever Pro Bowl draft on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The teams will be selected by Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders, who will serve as alumni team captains and have final say over draft decisions.

Rice and Sanders will each be assisted in the draft by two player captains and one NFL.com fantasy football champion.

Who owns the first selection in the Pro Bowl Draft and how the alumni captains will be paired with the player captains will be determined by a coin toss on Tuesday morning.

The Pro Bowl draft will be televised on NFL Network on Tuesday (7-8 p.m.) and Wednesday (7-10 p.m.). All 88 Pro Bowl players are expected to be in attendance for the Wednesday portion of the draft.

The 2014 Pro Bowl will be played Sunday, Jan. 26 at 6 p.m. from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. It will be telecast by NBC.
