You might be surprised to learn that six Saints have made this year’s Pro Bowl.

Whether you love it or hate it, the Pro Bowl rosters have been announced for the NFC and AFC. For the New Orleans Saints, they have six players on the squad. Drew Brees, Cameron Jordan, Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, and Marshon Lattimore have all made it.

Arguably, these were the clear candidates to get in for the Saints. In the fan voting process, which is said to count for one-third of the actual vote, saw Brees tally 743,355 votes (5th highest overall). Also at their respective positions, Terron Armstead and Max Unger were 4th highest, Cam Jordan and Alvin Kamara were 5th highest, Mark Ingram, Chris Banjo, and Marshon Lattimore were 6th highest, Kenny Vaccaro was 7th highest, and Thomas Morstead and Zach Line were 10th highest.

The Pro Bowl will be held on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Obviously, the hope is that the Saints won’t be participating in the event due to the Super Bowl.
