The Washington Post’s Jason Reid Reports that the Susan Lucci of the NFL, London Fletcher, is finally getting his due:
The Saints’ victory over the Vikings in the NFC Championship game means there’s an opening at linebacker in the Pro Bowl, with Jonathan Vilma playing in the Super Bowl.
And that means that London Fletcher, elected to the team as an alternate, will replace Vilma in the game next Sunday night in Miami. He’ll join the Redskins’ other representative, Brian Orakpo.
Fletcher commented on the news late Sunday night, via Twitter:
“12 years and 1 Overtime later….FINALLY Pro Bowl bound. Well worth the wait! God is great!!!”
