Eagles WR DeSean Jackson

By Justin Adkins:

The Eagles will be well represented in this year’s Pro Bowl.  The following Birds players were selected:

QB Michael Vick
WR DeSean Jackson
LT Jason Peters
CB Asante Samuel
K David Akers

In addition, the Eagles had RB LeSean McCoy, LG Todd Herremans, and DE Trent Cole as 1st alternates, with SS Quintin Mikell and FB Owen Schmitt as 2nd alternates.

The most glaring omission from the first team is McCoy.  Unfortunately, playing in the NFC with stalwarts Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson, and Michael Turner makes breaking through difficult.

Atlanta led the NFL with 7 selections.  Next was New England with 6, and then Philadelphia, Baltimore and Dallas all tied at 5.
