I wanna thank everyone for giving me a shot at my first Pro Bowl. Especially God, my teammates and coaches. #blueandyellow for life. – Shaun Phillips
San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Shaun Phillips has been added to the Pro Bowl roster and this will be his first appearance in a Pro Bowl. He is the only defensive player from the number 1 ranked Chargers defense that made it on the Pro Bowl roster.
He will be taking James Harrison‘s spot on the roster. Phillips has had a great season and is well deserving of his first Pro Bowl appearance. He will be joining Chargers Philip Rivers and Kris Dielman on the team. Antonio Gates was also named to the team, but will miss the game due to his foot injury.
