With fan balloting for the 2016 Pro Bowl now open, below is a look at a few Seahawks players worthy of your vote. Balloting closes on Tuesday, Dec. 15, with Pro Bowl players being announced the following week on Tuesday, Dec. 22, live on NFL Network.

Defense

FS Earl Thomas: Thomas, a four-time Pro Bowler who's started every game in his career, has 47 tackles and a team-high three interceptions on the year.

SS Kam Chancellor: A three-time Pro Bowler, Chancellor has 60 tackles and one interception on the year.

CB Richard Sherman: He hasn't recorded an interception yet, but he's playing lockdown defense on some of the NFL's best receivers, providing blanket coverage of the Cincinnati Bengals' A.J. Green, San Francisco 49ers' Torrey Smith, and Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant to the tune of a team-high nine passes defensed. A two-time Pro Bowler in his career, Sherman's 24 picks and 77 passes defensed since 2011 are most in the League.

DE Michael Bennett: His 6.5 sacks on the season are tied for most on the team (Cliff Avril). He was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his career-high 3.5 sack performance against the 49ers in Week 7.

DE Cliff Avril: He's been a consistent disruptive force all season, notching a tied-for-a-team-high 6.5 sacks (Michael Bennett) and five passes defensed at the line of scrimmage, a number that's tied third-most (Bobby Wagner) on the team to Sherman's nine and Thomas' seven.

LB Bobby Wagner: His 70 tackles rank second-most on the team and he's recovered two fumbles and returned them both for touchdowns. Wagner has posted 100-plus tackle seasons in each of his first three years. He received Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors for the first time last year despite missing five games at midseason to injury. 

LB K.J. Wright: He leads the team with 73 tackles and three forced fumbles in 2015 and has excelled in pass coverage, an attribute that gave Wright the edge in being named to ESPN.com NFL senior writer John Clayton's midseason All-Pro team.

Offense

QB Russell Wilson: He's completed a 67.5 percent of his passes and maintained a yards-per-attempt average (8.1) that is close to his career-mark from 2013 (8.2). He's also rushed 73 times for 385 yards (5.-yard average).

RB Thomas Rawls: He's responsible for three of the Seahawks' four 100-plus yard rushing efforts this season, including a franchise rookie-record 209 yards in Week 11 against the 49ers, a game that saw him put up 255 scrimmage yards and a pair of touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving. 

WR Doug Baldwin: His 44 catches for 539 yards and three touchdowns are all team highs. 

Special Teams

KR/PR Tyler Lockett: He was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month in September after returning a kick a club-record 105 yards and a punt 57 yards for touchdowns. He's also made 25 grabs for 308 yards and three touchdowns, scores that made him just the fourth rookie since 1970 to record touchdowns on a kick-return, a punt-return, and a reception in a season.
