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:
Chris Maragos (special teamer) and Brandon Graham (defensive end) are two Eagles I thought were snubbed. Graham is first alternate, I'm told— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) December 21, 2016
[UPDATED 9:05 PM EST] — Here’s the list of the Eagles’ alternates:
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.
