Pro Bowl Rosters 2017: Jason Peters, Fletcher Cox voted in for Eagles

Two Birds headed to the Pro Bowl.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Jason Peters and Fletcher Cox will represent the Eagles in the 2017 Pro Bowl this winter.

Peters, 34, is headed to his seventh Pro Bowl in nine years as an Eagle, while Cox, 26, is headed to his second straight Pro Bowl. It’s Peters’ ninth career Pro Bowl selection; he went twice as a member of the Buffalo Bills.

Cox has 6.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery this season, after picking up 9.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries last year.

Peters has played left tackle on an offensive line devoid of any semblance of consistency, and allowed the Eagles to average 113 yards per game on the ground this season, while keeping rookie quarterback Carson Wentz upright and healthy.

According to Les Bowen of the Daily News, Brandon Graham, who will likely be listed among the snubs, is a first alternate:

[UPDATED 9:05 PM EST] — Here’s the list of the Eagles’ alternates:

Brandon Graham

Rodney McLeod

Jason Kelce

Chris Maragos

Darren Sproles

Malcolm Jenkins

The Pro Bowl is headed back to the AFC-NFC split format this year, as it existed for so long before the ill-fated draft versions the last few years.

The game is January 29, 2017, and takes place at 8:00 PM ET in Orlando, Florida. It’ll be viewable on ESPN.
