Colts Pro Bowlers To Play For Jerry Rice

Intro: On Wednesday night, the 2016 Pro Bowl draft took place in Hawaii. Which teams did wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, cornerback Vontae Davis and safety Mike Adams end up on?


INDIANAPOLIS – Colts fans watching Sunday's Pro Bowl won't have to have split allegiances.

All three Colts Pro Bowlers, Vontae Davis, T.Y. Hilton and Mike Adams, will be playing for Jerry Rice's team.

On Wednesday, the 88 Pro Bowl players were in attendance at the Army's historic Wheeler Army Airfield in Hawaii for the draft.

Hall of Famers Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice were the Pro Bowl captains for a second straight season.

The first Colt that came off the board on Wednesday night was cornerback Vontae Davis.

Playing in his second straight Pro Bowl, Davis was taken by Team Rice.

"What a great trade (the Colts) made getting him from the Miami Dolphins a couple of years ago," ESPN analyst Jon Gruden said after Davis was selected on Wednesday.

"Here's another physical corner with ball skills. He can tackle. He has excellent playmaking skills down the field. He's been durable. I'm glad to see him back at the Pro Bowl. Much deserved."

Following the pick of Davis, T.Y. Hilton joined his teammate on Team Rice.

Unlike at last year's Pro Bowl, Davis and Hilton won't be lining up across from each other in this year's game. At the 2015 Pro Bowl, Hilton got the best of Davis for a touchdown.

In the final stages of Wednesday's draft, Mike Adams was also slotted to Team Rice.

Team Irvin, who the veteran Colts safety suited up for in last year's Pro Bowl, and Team Rice both praised the leadership of Adams on Wednesday night.

The 2016 Pro Bowl will kick off on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. EST on ESPN from Aloha Stadium in Hawaii.
