The 2013 Pro Bowl rosters have been announced and Aaron Rodgers will start at quarterback for the NFC in January.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will join Matt Ryan (Falcons) as his backups leading a potent Pro Bowl offense.

Naturally, as with any all-star game, Rodgers and Co. will have many options to turn to. Adrian Peterson gets the nod at running back. Calvin Johnson (Lions) and Brandon Marshall (Bears) will start the game at wide receiver to give the offense a clear NFC North feel. Johnson has 117 receptions for 1,892 yards, and Marshall has caught 113 passes for 11 touchdowns.

Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks), Frank Gore (49ers), Julio Jones (Falcons) and Victor Cruz (Giants) also made the team.

Washington tackle Trent Williams made the team as a reserve. Lorenzo Alexander was named to the roster for special teams.
