The 5-9 Giants and 4-10 Jets each had three players selected. For the Jets, kicker Jason Myers and return specialist Andre Roberts were also voted in, while Giants safety Landon Collins and kicker Aldrick Rosas were selected, too.
Barkley, the second overall pick in April’s draft, has rushed for 1,155 yards and nine touchdowns and caught 82 passes for 654 yards and four more TDs.
Collins was voted into the Pro Bowl for the third straight season but won’t be able to play in it after undergoing surgery on a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder earlier this month. In 12 games, he had 96 tackles and a forced fumble. Rosas, headed to his first Pro Bowl, is 28-of-29 on field goals and 25-of-26 on extra points.
Adams, whom the Jets drafted sixth overall in 2017, is also making his Pro Bowl debut after registering 94 tackles, 3 1/2 sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery so far this season. Myers is 31-of-33 on field goals and 25-of-28 on extra points. The fourth-year kicker is appearing in his first Pro Bowl, as is Roberts, who averages 26.8 yards per kickoff return and 14.9 yards per punt return, which includes a 78-yard TD in Week 1 against the Lions.
