It might not be the Super Bowl, but three New York Jets are going to Disney World anyway.

Safety Jamal Adams, kicker Jason Myers, and returner Andre Roberts will represent the Jets at the 2019 Pro Bowl. The game, the 46th under the AFC-NFC format, will take place on Jan. 27, 2019, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. This will be the first Pro Bowl appearance for each player.

Making the Pro Bowl was a personal goal for Adams. After missing out on the NFL’s all-star game as a rookie last season, Adams made a personal vow on Twitter to eventually reach the festivities. The Jets were all too happy to remind Adams of his public promise.

Adams would check-in from home to thank the Jets for their support in the Pro Bowl voting process. In 14 games this season, Adams has picked up 12 pass deflections, good for a sixth-place tie in the league, as well as 71 solo tackles and his first career interception.

The Jets’ special teams unit has been a rare consistent silver lining in their woebegone season. Their efforts were rewarded in Tuesday’s Pro Bowl announcements, as two of their better stories will likewise bear the AFC brand.

Myers was a late summer signing, cut by Seattle in the midst of training camp. Thus far on the season, he has converted 31-of-33 field goals for a 94 percent success rate. Five of his kicks have come from at least 55 yards out, becoming the first kicker in NFL history to do so. With his nomination, Myers becomes the first player from Marist College to reach the Pro Bowl. He also becomes the first Jets kicker ever selected to the game.

One of the Jets’ older players at 30, Roberts leads the league with an average kick return of 26.8 yards and punt return of 14.9. In the Jets’ victorious season-opening win in Detroit, Roberts took back a punt 78 yards for a touchdown, the second-longest punt return in the league this season. The Jets are his fifth team, having signed with them in March. He is the third player from The Citadel to be elected to the Pro Bowl, and the first since Travis Jervey in 1997.

This is the first time the Jets have sent multiple players to the Pro Bowl since 2015. Shelden Williams went in 2016, while no players were elected last season.

Lineback Avery Williamson was selected to the game as an alternate. He will likely partake in the game if a player drops out due to injury or participation in the ensuing weekend’s Super Bowl. Williamson currently leads the Jets in tackles with 107 combined tackles.

The Jets return to action on Sunday afternoon against the Green Bay Packers at home (1:00 p.m. ET, Fox).
