Pro Bowl rosters were announced tonight. It should come as little surprise that the Jets did not have a player selected.
Usually fans get outraged when a player on their team gets snubbed. I can’t really think of a player on the Jets who deserved to be a Pro Bowler, though. I can name some players who are having nice seasons like Leonard Williams, Demario Davis, and Robby Anderson. None of them are really elite level players in 2017, though.
In many instances, selection to the Pro Bowl comes down to reputation and name recognition. I thought there was an outside chance Williams might make it on name alone, but that was apparently not to be.
You can see which players were selected for the NFL’s All-Star Game here.
The 2018 Pro Bowl will be held in Orlando, Florida, on January 28, which falls the weekend before this season’s Super Bowl.
UPDATE: Jamal Adams and Josh McCown were selected as alternates.
