Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier got some good news Monday night: He’s going to the Pro Bowl.
Shazier will replace Baltimore Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley, who pulled out of the 2017 Pro Bowl because of a calf injury he sustained in Week 17. Shazier, who had been arguably one of the biggest Pro Bowl snubs, was an obvious choice for a replacement.
It’s the third-year linebacker’s first Pro Bowl appearance.
Statistically, Shazier had a great regular season: 69 total tackles, three-and-a-half sacks, three forced fumbles and one interception. But he means so much more to this Pittsburgh defense.
And now he’s been rewarded with a well-deserved trip to Orlando.
