The day just kept getting better for Cordarrelle Patterson on Thursday.

First he was named the NFL’s offensive player of the month, then he was later named to the Pro-Bowl.

Patterson will replace Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown on the roster, according to the Star Tribune.

The Pro-Bowl will have a different format this season, as Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will pick teams from the pool of players that were selected. The “draft” will take place on January 22, with the Pro-Bowl being played on January 26.

With the addition of Patterson, there are now three former Tennessee Volunteers that will be playing in the game, with Eric Berry and Peyton Manning being the other two.
