Squads set after Pro Bowl draft

Steelers' wide receiver Antonio Brown teamed with Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt to serve as Pro Bowl co-captains on Hall of Famer Cris Carter's 'Team Carter,' helping with the selection process at Wednesday night's Pro Bowl Draft.   

Brown made sure one of his teammates would be close by, when in a pre-draft selection that included guards, centers, fullbacks, interior defensive linemen, placekickers, punters, return specialists and special teamers, Team Carter selected Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, as well as his brother, Dolphins' guard Mike Pouncey.

In addition, Brown and Team Carter drafted Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons, assuring all three teammates would be on the same squad.

The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, Jan. 25 at 8 pm at University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona and will air on ESPN.
