Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson relinquished has starting spot in the Pro Bowl for the NFC on Sunday afternoon, instead passing the honor to veteran quarterback Drew Brees just hours before kickoff in Orlando, Fla.
The news was first reported by Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.
This is the 13th Pro Bowl selection for Brees, and Sunday's game could be the final NFL start for the 41-year-old. Brees said he hasn't decided yet whether he will return this fall for a 20th NFL season, which would be his 15th with the New Orleans Saints.
Brees is the NFL's all-time leader in several statistical categories, including passing yards (77,416), touchdown passes (547) and completions (6,867).
