Vincent Jackson and Ryan Mathews Added to Pro Bowl Roster


With the New England Patriots headed to the Super Bowl. Wes Welker will not make it out to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. To fill his spot on the roster, Vincent Jackson will be added to the team.

Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens declined his invite out to Hawaii for personal reasons and Ryan Mathews will take his spot for his first appearance out to Hawaii.

Jackson and Mathews will be joining Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates and Eric Weddle for the festivities.

    I thought Philip Rivers was going? Specially now that Brady is going to the Super Bowl.

      @LeonardoVelazquez Philip was already voted in… with Antonio Gates and Eric Weddle

        @epadaon Oh what the heck, sorry, for some reason I only saw Gates and Weddle on your list, duh. I’m happy Mathews is going, he had a great year and would have had a better one if they handed him the ball more.

          @LeonardoVelazquez i wish we gave him the ball more… especially down in the goal line area. I liked him better down there than Mike Tolbert

        • LeonardoVelazquez

          @epadaon Yeah I hate that they give Tolbert the ball in the redzone, Mathews would have a lot more TDs. But I do understand the concern with fumbles and injury tendency given thr higher level of physicallity in running it at the goal line. Still I can’t help but wish he played more, for sure a Pro Bowler if he played more.

    I just wish the Pro Bowls were something exciting to watch, last year’s had to be the worst one yet.
