Cordarrlle Patterson is the only Minnesota Vikings player to represent his team at the Pro Bowl, and now he has been drafted to that team. Wide receiver Patterson has been assigned to Team Sanders as their punt returner.
The Pro Bowl did not go with the typical NFC vs. AFC this year. Instead they have been chosen by two different captains, either Deion Sanders or Jerry Rice, in a draft style format. The draft took place over two days on the NFL Network Wednesday night and Patterson was placed on the second day.
You can watch the Pro Bowl on January 26th on NBC (Channel 11 for the Twin Cities) at 6:30 PM CST.
