For the second straight year, the Seattle Seahawks have six players headed to the Pro Bowl.

Quarterback Russell Wilson, strong safety Kam Chancellor, running back Marshawn Lynch, free safety Earl Thomas, cornerback Richard Sherman and center Max Unger were chosen on Friday.

After being snubbed last year despite being voted All-Pro, Richard Sherman received 552,600 votes by fans, the most for any defensive player.

Thomas and Lynch have been to the past two Pro Bowls. Unger and Wilson went last year. Chancellor went in 2011.

The NFL combines votes from fans, players and coaches to determine 86 of 88 Pro Bowl players; the other two players are long-snappers selected by Pro Bowl coaches. Voting ended Thursday.
