Seahawks land 3 more on Pro Bowl squad

Published on January 28, 2012 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is going to have some familiar faces with him on the NFC roster for Sunday’s Pro Bowl.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, cornerback Brandon Browner and safety Kam Chancellor were among the 24 players selected Tuesday as replacements for the annual game in Honolulu matching the NFC against the AFC.

Lynch, who rushed for 1,204 yards and scored 12 touchdowns for Seattle this season, steps in for San Francisco running back Frank Gore, who is ill. Browner and Chancellor also take over spots vacated by the 49ers’ Carlos Rogers (Browner) and Dashon Goldson (Chancellor), putting 75 percent of the Seahawks’ starting secondary in the Pro Bowl.

Rookie quarterbacks Cam Newton and Andy Dalton also were chosen to replace Super Bowl quarterbacks Eli Manning and Tom Brady. Seven of the 24 replacements are filling in for Patriots; two are replacing Giants.

Carolina’s Newton replaces Manning, and Chicago defensive end Julius Peppers steps in for Jason Pierre Paul. The players stepping in for New England are Dalton and tight end Jermaine Gresham (for Rob Gronkowski) of Cincinnati, Jets guard Brandon Moore (for Logan Mankins), Jacksonville special teamer Montell Owens (for Matthew Slater), Baltimore guard Ben Grubbs (for Brian Waters), San Diego wide receiver Vincent Jackson (for Wes Welker) and Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins (for Vince Wilfork).
