The NFL announced the 2016 Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday, and the Detroit Lions have two representatives in the annual all-star game. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson will make his sixth appearance; defensive end Ezekiel Ansah will make his first.
Johnson, 30, is a regular participant at the Pro Bowl. With six straight 1,000-yard seasons, he owns the NFL’s longest active streak. The man known as Megatron is still one of the toughest players to cover at 6-foot-5 and 237 pounds.
Ansah, 26, is in his third season and is a budding pass-rusher. He has 13.5 sacks, a total that’s tied with Houston’s J.J. Watt for second most in the NFL. The former fifth-overall draft pick has developed into a legitimate difference-maker.
Watch Johnson and Ansah play in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 31 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
