The NFL will announce the players who will make this year's Pro Bowl, which will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium the weekend before the Super is played there.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was asked about which players on his team deserve a berth in the league's All-Star game when he met with the media on Monday.

Arians said "he would hope" some players are selected.

"There are some guys that have played outstanding all year," Arians said. "Some guys have reputations and other guys earned it. Sometimes, a guy like Jared Veldheer I think has played at that level all year, but he's in a new conference and probably won't get the respect factor he deserves."

When asked specifically about Calais Campbell, Arians said "that's something he deserves."

Who has reputation? Larry Fitzgerald. Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie.

Who has earned it this year? Veldheer probably does. Campbell certainly does. Rashad Johnson could get consideration.

On special teams, Justin Bethel has both reputation and has earned it this year.

Last season, Arizona had Bethel, Fitz, Peterson and John Abraham in the Pro Bowl.

Who will make it this season?
