The Giants had just six wins this season, but they have four Pro Bowlers.

The two late additions to the annual all-star game in Hawaii are cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and kicker Josh Brown. Both were named as replacements for injured Patriots players Malcolm Butler and Stephen Gostkowski.

They will join Giants teammates Odell Beckham Jr., who was the only elected representative in the Pro Bowl from the Giants, along with Eli Manning who was named as a replacement for Ben Roethlisberger last week. Four Pro Bowl representatives are the most by the Giants since 2013 when Manning, Victor Cruz, Jason Pierre-Paul and Chris Snee attended.

Brown was an alternate in the initial Pro Bowl voting and will participate in the game for the first time in his 13-year career. Rodgers-Cromartie will make his second appearance and his first since 2010 when he was with the Cardinals.

The game will be played Sunday in Honolulu. Beckham has been selected as a captain in the game and will help select the rosters in a “draft” of the Pro Bowl players on Wednesday.
