NFL Pro Bowl rosters 2013: Aaron Rodgers earns third selection

Aaron Rodgers will start for the NFC in the Pro Bowl.

Selected as the NFC's starting quarterback over Atlanta's Matt Ryan and Washington's Robert Griffin III, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers earned his third career Pro Bowl nod on Wednesday.

Rodgers was joined on the NFC roster by his starting center Jeff Saturday, who will be making his sixth career appearance in Hawaii. The 37-year-old Saturday was previously voted to five Pro Bowl teams earlier in his career with the Colts, and checked in as the No. 2 center this year behind Seattle's Max Unger.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Packers will be represented by rush linebacker Clay Matthews, who is set to play in his fourth Pro Bowl in four seasons in the NFL. Matthews was chosen as the NFC's third outside linebacker behind San Francisco's Aldon Smith and Dallas' DeMarcus Ware. Matthews has 12.0 sacks on the season with one game remaining, which is two shy of his career high.
