I imagine these announcements will start to trickle out as we get closer to the 4 p.m. unveiling of this year’s Pro Bowl team. But according to agent Peter Schaffer, Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Russell Okung has been named as a starter on this year’s team in his third season.

Also, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, cornerback Richard Sherman has surprisingly been left off the Pro Bowl roster. Breer said it had nothing to do with Sherman’s pending appeal. Headed out to practice.
Richard Sherman did not make the Pro Bowl, per sources, but I'm told the PED rules are not relevant in this case.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) December 26, 2012
