London Fletcher named to Pro Bowl, joining Brian Orakpo and DeAngelo Hall

By Cindy Boren

Redskins linebacker London Fletcher has been named to the Pro Bowl roster, replacing Brian Urlacher, who suffered an injury in the Chicago Bears' loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game.

"I am extremely honored to play in the Pro Bowl," Fletcher said in a statement released by the Redskins. "I am very excited to make the trip to Hawaii. I would like to thank all of my teammates, coaches, fans and everyone else who played a part in getting me here."

He'll join Brian Orakpo, who replaces Clay Matthews Jr., of the Packers, and DeAngelo Hall on the NFC team.

"It's great to get to go to the Pro Bowl again in just my second season in the league," Orakpo said in a statement. "I am excited about going to Hawaii, where the Pro Bowl has been for so many years. Last year was fun, but it will be special getting to play in Hawaii. I want to thank all my teammates and coaches for helping me get here, and I also want to thank all of the fans who voted for me."

I love it.

Fletch is my man. A free agency signing that went wonderfully right.
