Eric Reid Selected by Team Rice at 2014 Pro Bowl

Drafted by the greatest! Knew Jerry would take me  — Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) January 23, 2014

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.

@LilEazyAna42 and I haven't been on the same team since high school...guess we aren't starting now! #ProBowl — Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) January 23, 2014
