Twenty-four of the 86 Pro Bowl selections are newcomers. Not only has he emerged as one of the top shutdown cornerbacks in the National Football League, but on Tuesday, Slay was rewarded for his efforts as he was selected to his first Pro Bowl. On defense, it will be Jaguars DE Calais Campbell and CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye; Ravens S Eric Weddle and LB C.J. Mosley; Broncos LB Von Miller; Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney; Chargers DE Joey Bosa; Titans DT Jurell Casey; Bengals DT Geno Atkins; and Miami S Reshad Jones.
Then there's the right side of the offensive line, where Johnson and Brooks have been holding it down for the NFC's most potent rushing attack despite key injuries on the left side.
Obviously, Wentz won't be playing in his first Pro Bowl, and it remains to be seen if any other Eagles are playing on January 28, 2018 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
The Packers were one of five teams without a player voted to the team.
If you happen to follow Slay on Twitter, you probably noticed he was not exactly shy about asking his fans to vote for him early and often. He set the Eagles' team record for touchdowns in a season with 33, against just seven interceptions. "The ultimate goal is to win football games in this league. I think that whole process has been really fulfilling".
He leads the Buccaneers this season with five sacks, 12 tackles for loss and 22 quarterback hits.
Among NFL tight ends this season, Ertz is tied for second in receiving touchdowns (eight, tied for the most by an Eagles tight end since the 1970 merger) and ranks fourth in receiving yards (719).
