Tonight the official Pro Bowl rosters were announced for the AFC and NFC. The Eagles had six representatives for last year's game (but didn't play in it because they had a more important game to play), but this year the Eagles will only have three representatives:
In my article predicting who would make the roster, I had four "locks" making the Pro Bowl, and all three of these Eagles were my locks. The one player a part of my locks who got snubbed was Jason Kelce.
This is Fletcher Cox's 4th straight Pro Bowl selection, as he continues to prove that he is one of the best defensive lineman in team history. Cox is only the 10th player in franchise history with at least four straight Pro Bowl seasons.
Zach Ertz and Brandon Brooks have both been selected to the Pro Bowl for the 2nd-consecutive season. They are both playing at elite levels this season and fully deserve to be recognized as among the best players at their respective positions.
The Eagles also had four players selected as Pro Bowl alternates:
Kelce and Jenkins deserved to be named to the actual rosters, but at least they rightfully got recognized as alternates. If the Eagles don't make the Super Bowl and other players drop out, there a possibility we could see up to seven Eagles playing in the all-star game.
