On Tuesday night, it was announced that Aaron Rodgers, T.J. Lang, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix have been named to the 2017 Pro Bowl roster.

Rodgers, a five-time pro-bowler, will be the first backup to the Falcons’ Matt Ryan. Rodgers has led the Packers to an 8-6 record, throwing for 32 touchdowns and just seven interceptions on the season. Rodgers is currently sixth in the NFL with 3,781 passing yards, and holds the fifth-best passer rating (100.3) of any quarterback in the league.

T.J. Lang earned his first Pro Bowl bid as a member of the offensive line. Lang has been a Packer since he was drafted in 2009, and has only missed nine games in that time. He’ll serve as the first backup guard for the NFC this year.

Clinton-Dix will also receive his first Pro Bowl bid since going pro in 2014. As a first-round draft pick by the Packers, Clinton-Dix has played in every game since he was drafted, recording eight interceptions and two forced fumbles in nearly three complete seasons. The third-year veteran will serve as the first NFC backup at free safety.

Jordy Nelson and David Bakhtiari will both serve as alternates for the NFC.
