Ravens safety Eric Weddle is headed to the Pro Bowl


Eric Weddle is headed to his fourth Pro Bowl, he was originally a second alternate, but was added too the roster on Monday. He’s taken the spot of New England’s Devin McCourty who is unable to play because he’s preparing for the Super Bowl. Weddle was the ravens biggest snub from the AFC team when the 2017 Pro Bowl rosters were announced last month. He was one of  just three safeties who recorded over 85 tackles and three interceptions this season(Kurt Coleman and Landon Collins). His agent took to twitter to criticize the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys who both struggled with safety play in losses this postseason.

In his first season with the Ravens, the 32-year old registered 89 tackles, 13 pass deflections, 4 interceptions, 1 sack, and 1 forced fumble. He signed with the team this offseason after the San Diego Chargers cut him after 9 seasons. Weddle is the sixth Raven to be named to this year’s Pro Bowl and will join kicker Justin Tucker, linebacker C.J. Mosley, fullback Kyle Juszczyk and long-snapper Morgan Cox as participants in Sunday’s game in Orlando Florida. Guard Marshal Yanda opted not to play because of a lingering shoulder injury.

This year’s Pro Bowl is Sunday, Jan 29 at 8 p.m. EST in Orlando.
