Brian Orakpo, Alfred Morris To Play In Pro Bowl


Through the tumultuous 2013-14 season, things may be getting a little bit better for Washington Redskins fans.  After the team’s recent hire of Jay Gruden, Redskins Alfred Morris and Brian Orakpo were added by coaches Jerry Rice and Deon Sanders to the Pro Bowl rosters.  Orakpo was the most recent replacement, filling in for San Francisco 49er’s Ahmad Brooks.  This will be Orakpo’s third pro bowl appearance and may be his last as a Washington Redskin.  The soon to be free agent may decide to test the waters after recording 10 sacks and 60 tackles a season ago.

On the other hand, Morris will receive the Super Bowl bound Marshawn Lynch’s spot.  Morris was guaranteed a spot when both Frank Gore and Lynch advanced into Sunday’s NFC Championship.  The former Florida Atlantic tailback had his second consecutive outstanding season, but will make just his first appearance in Hawaii.  The Redskins tally now stands at three, as Orakpo and Morris will join offensive tackle Trent Williams for the January 26th contest.  Tune in and check out your favorite Redskins represent the National Football League’s finest this Sunday.
