On Friday, the NFL released the names of the five players it announced as its finalists for the 2016 Pro Bowl.
The players chosen to represent the San Francisco 49ers are not expected to participate in the game, as the league has been working to address its myriad issues with concussions and player safety.
This is the third consecutive year the Pro Bowl has been held at Candlestick Park.
In 2016, the Rams’ Stephen Jones and Seattle’s Doug Baldwin were announced as the finalists, and were the only teams to make the cut.
The other finalists were Miami Dolphins linebacker Reshad Jones, Washington Redskins safety Kam Chancellor, New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan and New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
The league will announce the final roster of the Pro Bowl at a later date.
The Pro Bowl is the most prestigious professional football event in the world, with the players competing in a wide variety of events including football, basketball, baseball, hockey, softball and the NBA All-Star Game.
In addition to the three finalists announced Friday, three other teams have also been given an invitation to the game.
The Miami Dolphins are expected to be the first team to make their Pro Bowl debut.
They will be joined by the San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks, two teams that made the playoffs last year, and New Orleans’ Saints, who are expected again to be one of the finalists.
The winner of the 2016 Super Bowl will host the 2016 season opener.
The 2017 Pro Bowl will take place at Soldier Field in Chicago, with Super Bowl 50 set for February 6, 2021.
