Pro Bowl race
This is the final week of fan voting for February’s Pro Bowl, and several Bucs are in the running.
We asked the NFL to provide us with an update on Tampa Bay's candidates. Turns out, three Bucs are among the top vote-getters at their respective positions as of Wednesday. Ronde Barber is fourth among NFC cornerbacks with 172,210 votes; Jeff Garcia is fifth among NFC quarterbacks with 196,471 votes; and Derrick Brooks is sixth among NFC outside linebackers with 109,469 votes. Three players will be chosen at each of those positions.
However, the voting could change dramatically. Fan voting counts as just one-third of the balloting. The other two-thirds are comprised of coaches’ and players’ votes.
In the meantime, votes can be cast here through the end of this week.
