ORLANDO, Fla. — Five Minnesota Vikings have been named to the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl.

QB Kirk Cousins, DE Everson Griffen, FB C.J. Ham, LB Eric Kendricks and CB Xavier Rhodes were named on Tuesday, all replacing other players unable to participate due to injury or the Super Bowl.

The five join three Vikings who were already named: RB Dalvin Cook, DE Danielle Hunter and S Harrison Smith. The eight playing in this year's Pro Bowl mark the most for the team since they set a record with 10 after the 2009 season.

This will be Cousins' second-career Pro Bowl after he set two NFL records and multiple Vikings marks in 2019.

2020 will be Griffen's first Pro Bowl since three consecutive appearances after the 2015-2017 seasons.

Rhodes is a three-time Pro Bowler. He finished this season with 63 tackles, six passes defensed, five tackles for loss and one forced fumble.
