The NFL announced their Pro Bowl players for the 2014 Pro Bowl which will happen on January 26. No team had more Pro Bowl players than the 49ers with eight.

Ahmad Brooks is making his Pro Bowl debut as he has a career-high 8.5 sacks this year. The other seven players listed include NaVorro Bowman, Patrick Willis, Frank Gore, Mike Iupati, Justin Smith, Joe Staley and Vernon Davis.

Last season, no 49ers made the Pro Bowl due to the fact they were playing in the Super Bowl last February. The 49ers had nine players represented in the Pro Bowl for the 2012 season, including OLB Aldon Smith. Smith served a suspension which lasted five games after being arrested for a DUI. He is still dealing with legal issues in regards to a house incident from a party at his house in 2012.

Six 49ers were named Pro Bowl alternates, which includes rookie free safety Eric Reid. The other five alternates are Donte Whitner, Andy Lee, Anquan Boldin, C.J. Spillman and Alex Boone.

This will be the first Pro Bowl that will not divide the players by NFC and AFC conferences. Instead, it will be a draft where Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will serve as captains in picking the players.
