2012 Pro Bowl: Brian Jennings Named 'Need' Player; Frank Gore To Play [UPDATE]

Fooch's Note: It now sounds like Frank Gore will head to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.

Although the season ended with a thud, there is still some good news for the 49ers. Long snapper Brian Jennings was added to the NFC's 2012 Pro Bowl roster as a "need" player. I believe the coaching staff is allowed to add a player for any sort of role, and Jennings was the pick. It is worth noting that the Packers will be coaching the team this year. The coaching staffs come from the divisional round losing teams with the best records, so no Harbowl 2 - Honolulu edition.

Big congrats to Jennings for this selection. He has been a beast for this team as the long snapper and is the longest tenured 49ers player, so way to go Brian.

In other Pro Bowl news, Frank Gore reportedly will not play in the Pro Bowl. Given that he has been banged up for much of the season, this is not a surprising decision. Given the ups and downs of this season it will be interesting to see how things go heading into next season. Kendall Hunter showed some great signs this season and likely has earned a chance at more playing time in 2012.
