LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season.

Jennings replaced Seattle's Richard Sherman. Long takes the place of San Francisco's Mike Iupati, who is injured and unable to participate.

Jennings led the Bears with four interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. He also tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles and had one opponent fumble recovery.

Jennings has 13 interceptions over the past two seasons, second to Sherman's 16.

Long helped solidify a line with four new starters after Chicago had struggled to protect Jay Cutler in recent years.

The son of Hall of Famer Howie Long, he started all 16 games at right guard after being drafted with the 20th pick and was part of a team that set a franchise record for total net yards (6,109), while finishing second in club history in points (445). Kyle Long is the Bears' first offensive lineman to make the Pro Bowl since guard Ruben Brown and centre Olin Kreutz for the 2006 season.

The Bears have five Pro Bowlers, with Jennings and Long joining running back Matt Forte and receivers Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall.
