For Brady, he adds yet another record to his storied NFL career. With his 15th Pro Bowl selection, Brady broke a tie with Hall of Famers Tony Gonzalez, Peyton Manning, Bruce Matthews and Merlin Olsen to have the most in league history.

Kupp, Taylor, Diggs and Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert are among the notable first-time Pro Bowlers.

Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons, Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts and Chargers offensive tackle Rashawn Slater were rookie players who were selected to the Pro Bowl.

"An extreme honor," Parsons said about being named to the Pro Bowl. "One of those things where it’s not an expectation; it’s something that you earn."

The 2022 Pro Bowl will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Feb. 6 (3 p.m. ET on ESPN, ABC and Disney XD).
