Lacy joins Deion Sanders' Pro Bowl roster

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Jan 22, 2014

He's the lone Green Bay Packers player in the 2014 Pro Bowl, but he'll be wearing different colors than green and gold on Sunday.

Rookie running back Eddie Lacy will take the field for the yellow-and-gray clad Deion Sanders team in the draft-style selection.

 He will go up against a team run by fellow legend Jerry Rice.


He rushed the ball 284 times during the 2013 season for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Packers.  In many ways, he carried the offense during the time Aaron Rodgers was injured.

The Pro Football Writers Association of America chose Lacy as Rookie of the Year.
