The NFL announced the AFC and NFC Pro Bowl squads Tuesday.
Fans, players and coaches selected the players that made each team, with each group’s collective vote counting one-third toward determining the AFC and NFC Conference rosters.
The 3-11 Tampa Bay Buccaneers had one player – cornerback Ronde Barber – selected to the 2007 Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Barber, who signed a contract extension with the Bucs in August, ranks fourth on the team with 103 tackles. He’s also intercepted a team-leading three passes, two of which he returned for touchdowns vs. the Eagles, and defended a team-high 18 passes this season.
This marks the fourth time in Barber’s career that he’s been voted to the Pro Bowl. In fact, he’s been voted to the Pro Bowl in three consecutive seasons.
Speaking of consecutive streaks, Bucs linebacker Derrick Brooks’ consecutive Pro Bowl streak has been snapped at nine.
Brooks, who has been voted to the Pro Bowl more times than any other Buccaneer in team history, is leading the team in tackles with 132. He’s also notched two interceptions this season.
Lance Briggs (Chicago), Julian Peterson (Seattle) and DeMarcus Ware (Dallas) were the three outside linebackers voted to the NFC’s Pro Bowl squad.
