The NFL announced Wednesday that the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers staffs will handle the game. Their rosters will be assigned after a Pro Bowl draft four days before the game.

Pro Football Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin will serve as non-playing captains for their Pro Bowl squads – Team Rice and Team Irvin – and each will select a coaching staff.

Five-time Pro Bowl safety Darren Woodson (Team Irvin) and two-time Pro Bowl defensive back Eric Davis (Team Rice) will serve as defensive co-captains.

Players were selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players. The Pro Bowl format first was used in the 2014 game.
