It'd already been decided that Nick Mangold and Chris Ivory would represent the Green & White in the 2016 Pro Bowl in Honolulu. But what we didn't know was whether the guys would be repping #TeamRice or #TeamIrvin on gameday.
On Wednesday Pro Football Hall of Famers and Pro Bowl captains Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin made draft selections from the Army's historic Wheeler Army Airfield.
Starting in 2014 the traditional AFC vs. NFC matchup was eliminated, making it possible for NFL teammates to be pitted against one another. However, this was not to be the case for the teammates in 2016 as both Jets were drafted by Team Rice.
But what Mangold's draft by Team Rice does mean is that come Sunday he will be sharing a whole lot more than just a home stadium with Giants QB Eli Manning. Since the duo has never played together on the same team, it appears that they have gotten a jump start on practice.
Will the Green & White find perfect harmony with Big Blue in Hawai'i by Sunday? Only one way to find out.
The 2016 Pro Bowl will start at 7 p.m. ET from Aloha Stadium on January 31 and will be televised live on ESPN.
