HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., and Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman have been named two of the four captains in the 2016 Pro Bowl and will help select the teams fior next Sunday's game, the NFL announced Friday.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins and Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald are the other two captains. The NFL says Atkins and Freeman will be paired together on one team, with Beckham and Donald together on the other.

The current NFL players will be joined by Hall of Fame receivers Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice prior to selecting teams during next Wednesday's Pro Bowl Draft.

To determine which team owns the first selection in the Pro Bowl Draft, as well as how Irvin and Rice will be paired with active players, the NFL says there will be a coin toss following the Pro Bowl's introductory press conference next Tuesday.
