Newton Will Replace Manning on NFC Pro Bowl Team as Giants Make Super Bowl

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will replace Eli Manning on the National Football Conference Pro Bowl team.

Manning will skip the Jan. 29 all-star game because his New York Giants will be preparing to take on the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl a week later.

Newton, 21, the top pick in last year’s NFL draft, set a rookie record with 4,051 passing yards for the 6-10 Panthers.
