Jets rookie safety Jamal Adams and veteran quarterback Josh McCown were named third and fifth alternates respectively for the AFC's Pro Bowl roster. 

Adams, a LSU product who was the No. 6 overall selection in the 2017 Draft, has started all 14 games and ranks fourth on the team with 66 total tackles. He also has racked up two sacks and six tackles for loss. Against the Saints in Week 15 action, Adams' first career forced fumble led to one of the Jets' three takeaways. The 6'1", 213-pound Adams has recovered two fumbles and added four pass defenses in his inaugural pro season.

Starting the Jets' first 13 games, McCown completed 67.3% of his passes while throwing for 2,926 yards. He amassed 23 touchdowns, passing for 18 and adding another five on the ground. The 38-year-old McCown, who signed with the Green & White in March, set a franchise record by becoming the first QB to complete over 70% of his passes during the first nine weeks of a single season.

Placed on injured reserve on Dec. 12, McCown's season ended when he broke his left hand against the Denver Broncos in Week 14. He is currently serving as a player-coach for the Jets.

The 2018 Pro Bowl, matching the AFC and the NFL on Jan. 28, will return to Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL for a second consecutive year.
