In less than two years, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell has gone from a second National Football League suspension, to garnering more fan votes than New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

The 2018 Pro Bowl is set for 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 28 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.

Chancellor, who won't play the rest of the season due to a neck injury, led NFC strong safeties with 149,793 votes while Thomas topped NFC free safeties with 139,203.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz received the most votes among NFC players for fourth most overall.? Gurley and quarterback Jared Goff came in at No. 6 and No. 8, respectively, with 693,697 and 571,656 votes.

At no. 10, the lone rookie among top vote getters is Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette.?

However, Bell's steady presence has been just as much of a factor in the Steelers' climb back towards the top of the National Football League the last two seasons.

"I wanted to get ready for Game 1, the games that count and go out there and try to win a Super Bowl", said Bell on September 4.

As you probably noticed, not a single Lions player ended up with the most votes for their respective position.

Other top vote-getters for their position in the AFC included: Alejandro Villanueva, David DeCastro, Maurkice Pouncey, Joey Bosa, Geno Atkins, Von Miller, Ryan Shazier, A.J. In addition, he has caught 75 passes for 579 yards and two scores and also paces the National Football League in total yards from scrimmage (1,684) as a result.

The full 2018 Pro Bowl rosters will be announced Tuesday based on a combination of fan, player and coach voting.
