The NFL Pro Borl voting period has one week remaining, and the Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers currently leads all players with 1,263,045 votes. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady currently leads the AFC with 1,149,721 votes.

Fan voting closes on December 19th. You can vote for your Pro Bowl players on the NFL's wesbite. The fan vote makes up one-third of the selection process, with a poll among players and a poll of NFL coaches making up the other two-thirds.

Among the AFC leaders at each position, there are currently no Miami Dolphins players. If you would like to help fix that, make sure you head over to the NFL's Pro Bowl site and start voting.

The NFL's full press release is below:
