Tom Brady wins fan vote for Pro Bowl

I doubt Tom Brady will need Terrell Suggs' vote to make the Pro Bowl.

Suggs, the Baltimore Ravens linebacker who has a long-standing personal disdain for Brady, told Yahoo! Sports columnist Michael Silver he didn't list Brady on his ballot for the Pro Bowl.

Suggs instead listed Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Ryan Fitzpatrick as the three quarterbacks he'd like to represent the AFC.

Very well. It's a meaningless jab.

Brady likely is the NFL's most valuable player this season, having guided the New England Patriots to a league-best 12-2 record. He leads the league with a 109.9 passer rating. His 31 touchdowns are tied with Drew Brees for the league lead. Brady has thrown only four interceptions. He's tied for fourth in completion percentage and ranks sixth in passing yardage.

Appropriately, Brady received more votes than any other player in Pro Bowl fan balloting. He finished with over 1.877 million votes. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was second with about 1.522 million.

Fans count for one-third of the Pro Bowl selection process. Players and coaches must submit their ballots this week to determine the 43-man roster. Teams will be announced at 7 p.m. Tuesday on the NFL Network.

No other AFC East player finished among the top 10 in total fan votes or had the most at his position.
