It hardly comes as shock, but New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is among the Pro Bowl’s Top 10 highest voted players right now. Per a Wednesday afternoon NFL press release, Brees is currently 6th overall in total fan votes with 207,751.

  3. Le’Veon Bell (227,771)

Unfortunately, there aren’t any Saints players are the leading vote-getters at any position. Fan voting for the 2018 Pro Bowl is available via online, and you can go here to make it easier. Voting is open until Dec. 14, and you can also case a vote through a Twitter Direct Message through the NFL’s handle (Twitter.com/NFL).

Fan votes count for one-third of the consideration for the 88 players selected, as the players and coaches will also have a say in their voting process for Dec. 15. Rosters will be announced on Tuesday, Dec. 19 through a NFL Network segment.

This season’s Pro Bowl kicks off at 2:00 p.m. CT from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. The even will be broadcast on ESPN with a simulcast on ABC.

Players like Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram, Cameron Jordan, and Marshon Lattimore deserve a vote, but the ultimate hope is that the Saints won’t have to worry about participating in a Pro Bowl due to being in the Super Bowl.
