How Many Pro Bowlers Do Eagles Have?
The Philadelphia Eagles may not be making the playoffs this season, but they'll still be represented at the 2015 Pro Bowl Bowl.
DE Fletcher Cox, RB Darren Sproles and LT Jason Peters were all named to the Pro Bowl as representatives for the Eagles.
Cox, 25, is having a breakout season on the national stage when he makes his first career Pro Bowl. So far on the year, Cox has 56 tackles and 7.5 sacks on the season. However, Cox makes his presence felt on the defensive line be a disruption and a run stopping lineman that's been compared to the likes of Jerome Brown at times.
Sproles, 32, makes his second consecutive Pro Bowl making his impact both in the running game and special teams as well. Sproles has two punt return touchdowns on the season, as well as two rushing touchdowns and 45 receptions on the season. With a struggling Eagles rushing game, Sproles has been the best running back on the team even in a limited fashion.
Peters, 33, makes his 8th career Pro Bowl and third consecutive game as one of the more dominant left tackles in the NFL. Peters has dealt with his fair share of injuries this season, but has fought through another campaign as a steady, consistent anchor of a depleted offensive line.
The 2016 Pro Bowl will be held in Hawaii on January 31, 2016.
