The rookie QB has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster, taking the spot of Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who will be preparing for Super Bowl XLVI.

Selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Newton passed for a single-season rookie record 4,051 yards with 21 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, adding 706 yards and 14 rushing touchdowns, setting an NFL single-season record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback.

Newton will join Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers and New Orleans’ Drew Brees as the third quarterback on the NFC roster.
