Dec. 21 (UPI) -- The NFL unveiled the complete AFC and NFC rosters for the virtual 2021 Pro Bowl on Monday, with the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks leading the way in selections.
The Chiefs, Packers, Ravens and Seahawks each had a league-best seven players selected to the upcoming Pro Bowl. Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers were designated as the starting quarterbacks for their respective conferences.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans joined Mahomes on the AFC roster. For the NFC, quarterbacks Russell Wilson of the Seahawks and Kyler Murray of the Arizona Cardinals were behind Rodgers.
Defensive end Frank Clark, offensive lineman Eric Fisher, wide receiver Tyreek Hill, defensive tackle Chris Jones, tight end Travis Kelce and safety Tyrann Mathieu also were named to the Pro Bowl for the Chiefs.
The Ravens have offensive tackle Orlando Brown, cornerback Marlon Humphrey, linebacker Matthew Judon, defensive tackle Calais Campbell, long snapper Morgan Cox, fullback Patrick Ricard and kicker Justin Tucker on the AFC roster.
For the Packers, Rodgers was joined on the NFC roster by receiver Davante Adams, cornerback Jaire Alexander, running back Aaron Jones, linebacker Za'Darius Smith, offensive tackle David Bakhtiari and guard Elgton Jenkins.
The Dallas Cowboys were among five teams without a Pro Bowl selection, with the others being the Jacksonville Jaguars, Carolina Panthers, New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals. This is only the third time in franchise history that Dallas didn't have at least one Pro Bowl player -- 1986 and 1989 being the other years.
The 2021 Pro Bowl was initially scheduled to take place Jan. 31 in Las Vegas, but the annual game was canceled because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the league is working with EA Sports to stage a week-long virtual experience, culminating with Pro Bowl players competing within the Madden NFL 21 video game.
Roster selections were determined by voting among players, coaches and fans. There were 26 first-time Pro Bowlers this year.
