NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Since the end of the regular season, the news surrounding the Seattle Seahawks has been mostly about which assistant coaches have been fired and who the team has tapped to replace those coaches. Tuesday, however, some positive news came in the form of Duane Brown being tapped to go to the Pro Bowl.

It will be Brown’s fourth trip to the Pro Bowl, and his first selection since 2014. The reason for adding Brown to the roster this late was the simple fact that it was not known until Sunday that Philadelphia Eagles tackle Lane Johnson would not be available until the Eagles made the Super Bowl by defeating destroying the Minnesota Vikings. Brown, always a professional, was thankful and grateful for the selection.

Thus, in spite of only being on the Seattle roster for nine games, and playing through an injury which prevented him from practicing for the majority of that time, Brown is now officially a four time Pro Bowler and the first Seattle offensive lineman to be selected to the Pro Bowl since Max Unger in 2013. Brown joins teammate Michael Bennett as a late addition to the Pro Bowl roster, with Bennett replacing Everson Griffen, who had opted out of playing due to injury.

Thus, on Sunday there will be plenty of Seahawks on the field for the Pro Bowl, the last time any Seahawks will be active for an NFL game until the preseason in August.
