Eric Reid was added to the Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday night and is now a member of Jerry Rice's team.
The 2014 version of the NFL's all-star game has an "unconferenced" theme with Hall of Famers Rice and Deion Sanders as the respective team captains. During Wednesday night's first ever Pro Bowl draft, Reid was selected to Rice's team where he'll be joined by two other safeties, Jairus Byrd of the Buffalo Bills and Antrel Rolle of the New York Giants.
After the draft was over, Reid posted a funny photo with his long-time rival, Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy. Both players competed in high school, college and twice more in their rookie seasons in the NFL.
The two up-and-coming pros will be opponents once again on Sunday.
