Five Saints Named To Pro Bowl
The New Orleans Saints have five players on their roster selected to represent the team in the upcoming NFL Pro Bowl at the end of January.
Quarterback Drew Brees is back for the eight time, his sixth consecutive trip as a member of the Saints.
Joining Brees in return trips to the annual all-star game in Hawaii is guard Jahri Evans, tight end Jimmy Graham and guard Ben Grubbs.
Defensive end Cameron Jordan made his first Pro Bowl roster of his career.
Only Pro Football Hall of Fame tackle William Roaf (7), has been selected to the Pro Bowl as many times in franchise record books. Brees' six consecutive selections rank second in club records behind Roaf's seven.
The 2014 Pro Bowl will be played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 6:00 PM ET and broadcast on NBC.
