Five Saints Named to 2012 NFL Pro Bowl Squad

New, comments

The official NFC and AFC Pro Bowl rosters have finally been announced and five players from the Saints have been selected.

Not surprisingly, those players are Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham, Carl Nicks, Jahri Evans and Jermon Bushrod. Also not surprising is the fact that nobody on the defensive side of the ball was elected.

Make the jump for full team rosters from each conference. Alternates have not yet been announced.
