Manning, Matthews, Slater following their fathers to the Pro Bowl


For three players on this year’s Pro Bowl rosters, making it to Hawaii is a family tradition.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Packers linebacker Clay Matthews and Patriots special teams coverage ace Matthew Slater have all been selected to the Pro Bowl, and all of them had fathers who were multiple-time Pro Bowlers as well.

Manning is the son of Archie Manning, who went to two Pro Bowls with the Saints. Matthews is the son of Clay Matthews, who was a four-time Pro Bowler with the Browns. And Slater is the son of Jackie Slater, who was chosen to the Pro Bowl seven times during his 20-year career with the Rams.
