The Chiefs Are Well Represented in the Pro Bowl

The Pro Bowl takes place next week Honolulu, Hawaii

Whether fans are looking on the field or to the sideline during the broadcast of the 2016 NFL Pro Bowl coming next week from Honolulu, Hawaii, there's a good chance that Chiefs Kingdom will see plenty of familiar faces.

Besides the five Chiefs players who earned their trips across the ocean, which included tight end Travis Kelce, cornerback Marcus Peters, linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali, and safety Eric Berry, one of the teams will be coached by Andy Reid and members of his staff.

It's the fifth time in his career that Reid has coached one of the Pro Bowl teams.

The Pro Bowl game will take place on Sunday, January 31 and will be broadcast on ESPN, but the practices start on Thursday after the teams are selected via a draft on Wednesday night.

Here's the info on the draft via NFL.com.

Players will be assigned to teams through the *Pro Bowl Draft presented by USAA, which will air on Wednesday, January 27 on ESPN2 (7:30 PM ET). Two Pro Football Hall of Famewide receivers -- Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice -- will serve as NFL Legends captains for the 2016 Pro Bowl. Irvin and Rice return for the second time after being the winning captains during the previous two Pro Bowls.*

*It was reported earlier this week that Houston would not be playing in the game and was replaced by Sean Lee of the Dallas Cowboys.

Some of the Chiefs training staff and equipment staff will travel to Hawaii as well, and so there will be many familiar faces for the players and staff making the trip.

The other team will be coached by Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers and his staff.
