Earlier this week, the NFL announced the Pro Bowl rosters for both the NFC and AFC.
However, there won’t be an actual Pro Bowl game this season due to the ongoing pandemic.

Regardless, the voting is still important for the players because it helps them during contract negotiations and possible Hall of Fame election.
Every year there are always players who get snubbed from the Pro Bowl and players who make it that aren’t deserving of the accolade.
No Pro Bowl For Teller
Somehow, Teller did not make the cut for the Pro Bowl roster.
It’s quite shocking that the third-year player was snubbed off the list.

Teller is having a breakout 2020 campaign and is arguably the best guard in the NFL right now.
Highest-Graded Players of 2020:
1. Aaron Rodgers – 94.9
2. Wyatt Teller – 93.8
3. Patrick Mahomes – 93.0

Sadly, he has been sidelined by injuries, so that could’ve contributed to his snub.
He missed four games due to injury and the Browns offense looked lackluster without him on the field.
Chris Hubbard did a nice job filling in, but it’s difficult to replace a talent like Teller.
Fellow teammate left guard Joel Bitonio did end up landing a spot on the Pro Bowl roster.

Possibly, the calf and ankle injuries were enough to snub Teller off the roster.
Indianapolis Colts guard Quenton Nelson earned his selection as he’s one of the best guards in the league.
However, there is an argument to be made that Teller deserved the spot over Pittsburgh Steelers guard David DeCastro.
While DeCastro is having a solid season, it’s not quite as good as Teller.
Sadly, there is nothing the NFL can do about players getting snubbed off the list.
Teller will just need to keep playing hard and prove the doubters wrong.
