Stephen Paea leading Pro Bowl voting
The latest NFL Pro Bowl voting results are out and Chicago Bears fans will recognize someone at the top in one position. Defensive tackle Stephen Paea leads all players at his position in the latest results released on Wednesday.
Paea is having the best year of his career with 6 sacks through 13 games this season. He also has 2 pass deflections and a forced fumble on the season. The four-year defensive tackle has been one of the bright spots on a struggling defense for the Bears this season.
Joining Paea on the defensive line is Willie Young who is No. 8 among defensive ends in the latest voting. The free-agent signee last offseason has been great for the Bears, recording a team-leading 8.5 sacks this season.
Rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller will also likely head to the Pro Bowl this season as he is currently No. 8 in voting among players at his position.
On the offensive side of the ball, the Bears have two players among the top 10 at their position. Running back Matt Forte is No. 4 among running backs and tight end Martellus Bennett comes in at No. 6.
Voting ends on Monday and the Pro Bowl will be played Jan. 25 following the same fantasy draft format as last season.
