Vilma Named To Pro Bowl
Saints defensive captain and 2010 Man of the Year Jonathan Vilma was named to his second straight Pro Bowl last night. Vilma said via twitter,”Thanks guys for the congrats on the probowl but there’s a diff bowl I can’t wait to get to…” Vilma joins teammates Drew Brees, Jahri Evans, and Carl Nicks on the NFC roster.
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis will miss the Pro Bowl due to his surgically repaired right hand. Willis’ injury opened the door for a very deserving Vilma to be selected to his second straight, and third overall.
The Pro Bowl will be played the week before the Super Bowl, on January 30th, in Hawaii.
