The New York Jets will be well-represented at the Pro Bowl Games

The New York Jets‘ playoff hopes are dwindling after Sunday’s gut-wrenching loss to the Detroit Lions, but they can at least find solace in the Pro Bowl fan voting.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport shared the final top AFC and NFC vote-getters for the Pro Bowl, and four different Jets lead all players at their respective positions.

Quinnen Williams has the most votes of any Jet with 215,452. This also makes for the second-highest total of any defensive player, trailing only Nick Bosa.

Rookie sensation Sauce Gardner got the most votes among corners with 191,876. Both he and Williams received more votes than current Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner Micah Parsons, who still leads all linebackers with 168,473 votes.

The other two Jets leading in fan voting are Justin Hardee (special teams) and Thomas Hennessy (long snapper).

The Jets have not had a player make the Pro Bowl since the 2019 season, when Jamal Adams earned the honor at strong safety. They haven’t had multiple players make it since the 2018 season, when Adams was joined also by placekicker Jason Myers and return specialist Andre Roberts.

The full rosters will be announced Wednesday, but the players Rapoport shared certainly have the inside track on earning roster spots. As Rapoport noted in his tweet, the fan vote accounts for one-third of the decision-making process. Coaches and players account for the other two-thirds.

The overall leading fan vote-getter was Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, beating out the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Jalen Hurts, Josh Allen and Joe Burrow.
