Rice picks Brees, Quinn to Pro Bowl team

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) NFL great Jerry Rice has picked New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees and St. Louis defensive end Robert Quinn as the anchors of his Pro Bowl team.

Rice made the selections Tuesday in Hawaii after winning a coin toss against Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders. Rice called tails.

The decision left Sanders with Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles and Houston defensive end J.J. Watt.

When asked whether the new schoolyard style format would leave players with bruised egos, Watt said he won't forget whom Rice picked first.

The toss and selections start a new process for the NFL in selecting this year's Pro Bowl team. Rice and Sanders are serving as captains and general managers in charge of divvying up the NFL stars.
