Fan voting is just one portion of the equation that sends players to the Pro Bowl, but based on public support, the New Orleans Saints could be well represented at the all-star game in January.
Quarterback Drew Brees received the most votes from fans of any player in the NFL, edging out Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who is Brees’ primary competition for the NFL MVP award.
Saints left tackle Terron Armstead, center Max Unger and kicker Wil Lutz all finished the fan voting ranked first in the NFC at their respective positions.
Running back Alvin Kamara was ninth in total fan voting, but that actually had him fourth among NFC running backs, behind Saquon Barkley of the Giants, Todd Gurley of the Rams and Ezekiel Elliott of the Cowboys.
The Pro Bowl also factors in voting from players and coaches. The league will announce the rosters next Tuesday at 7 p.m.
The Saints, of course, hope to miss the Pro Bowl on Jan. 27 in Orlando and instead be preparing for the Super Bowl the following week.
