Kerrigan, Reed, Williams, Scherff selected to Pro Bowl
The NFL announced Tuesday that four Washington Redskins will participate in the 2017 Pro Bowl.
Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, tight end Jordan Reed, left tackle Trent Williams and offensive guard Brandon Scherff will be the Redskins’ representatives. Cornerback Josh Norman, quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receiver/kick returner Jamison Crowder will serve as alternates. Kerrigan will participate in his second career Pro Bowl. This season, Kerrigan has 11 sacks, good for the fifth-most in the NFL. Williams has been selected for the fifth straight season. Williams joins safety Ken Houston and linebacker Chris Hanburger as the only players in Redskins history to be selected to five straight Pro Bowls. Scherff, in his first NFL season, joins Williams. Since he was drafted with the fifth overall pick in 2015, Scherff has started all 30 regular season games. This is the first time Washington has sent two offensive linemen to the same Pro Bowl since 1991, when tackle Jim Lachey and guard Mark Schlereth were rostered.
Reed is the first Redskins tight end selected to the Pro Bowl since Chris Cooley in 2008.
