Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr, defensive end Danielle Hunter, safety Harrison Smith and wide receiver Adam Thielen have been selected by players, fans and coaches to the 2019 NFL Pro Bowl.

Barr has been named to his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl a week after a career-high 2.0 sacks versus Miami. He has helped the Vikings defense rank near the top of the league in several categories and his absence was evident in November when he missed three games with a hamstring injury.

Hunter, who is tied for second in the NFL in sacks with 14.5, has earned his first Pro Bowl nod in his fourth NFL season.

Thielen, who has earned his second straight Pro Bowl honor, is second in the NFL with 105 receptions. His 1,255 receiving yards make him the first Viking to record back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons since Randy Moss did so from 1998-2003. Thielen earns a $500,000 bonus for making the Pro Bowl, KSTP Sports hears.
