Davante Adams, Mike Daniels to compete in Pro Bowl Skills Showdown

Posted Jan 22, 2018

Both Packers players will make their Pro Bowl debut this Sunday

GREEN BAY - Before making their Pro Bowl debuts this Sunday, Packers receiver Davante Adams and defensive tackle Mike Daniels will participate in the third-annual NFL Pro Bowl Skills Showdown Thursday in Orlando.

The event, airing January 25 at 8 p.m. CT on ESPN, pits players from the NFC and AFC against each other in dodgeball, a gauntlet relay, precision passing drills, catching footballs dropped from drones and a best hands exercise where two receivers from each conference catch a series of passes at a sequence downfield.

Adams was added to the Pro Bowl roster last week as an injury replacement for Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones. The fourth-year receiver led the Packers with 74 catches for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2017.

Daniels was named to the Pro Bowl earlier this month as an injury replacement for Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald. A three-time Pro Bowl alternate, Daniels had 49 tackles, five sacks and a forced fumble in 14 starts this season.

Joining Adams on the NFC team will be Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson, Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, New Orleans receiver Michael Thomas, Carolina kicker Graham Gano, Tampa Bay linebacker Kwon Alexander, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson and more.

AFC players who are confirmed to participate include Denver Broncos Von Miller, Cincinnati defensive tackle Geno Atkins, Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen, Miami receiver Jarvis Landry, Kansas City running back Kareem Hunt, Pittsburgh kicker Chris Boswell and Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith.

The Pro Bowl will be played Sunday, Jan. 28, at 3 p.m. CT.
