Four Vikings named to Pro Bowl 20 Dec 17

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Four Minnesota Vikings players have been picked for the Pro Bowl. They’re actually hoping not to participate in it. Wide receiver Adam Thielen, cornerback Xavier Rhodes, linebacker Anthony Barr and defensive end Everson Griffen are on the NFC roster for the annual all-star game, held in Hawaii on Jan. 28. Players whose teams reach the Super Bowl will be replaced. The Vikings have their sights set on the big game in Minnesota on Feb. 4. This was Thielen’s first such honor.
