Ed Staton, Louisiana SportsThree members of the Saints have been named to the NFC Pro Bowl squad.

Quarterback Drew Brees, guards Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks were voted by a combination of fans, players and coaches balloting. The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, Jan. 30 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. Teams that earn a berth in the Super Bowl will not send players to the Pro Bowl.

Brees has been selected to appear in his fifth Pro Bowl, his fourth as a Saint. The only Saints quarterback to be selected to the all-star game more than twice. Brees is the eighth player in franchise history to be selected at least four times.

Evans has been named to the squad for the second consecutive season and was selected as a starter. He is the only guard in franchise history to be named to the all-star game twice.

Nicks is a three-year veteran and has combined with Evans for one of the NFL's top interior combinations.
