Washington’s London Fletcher Named To NFC Pro Bowl Team

NFL

Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher has been named to the NFC Pro Bowl roster, according to ESPN.com.

Fletcher, 36, had been considered one of the bigger snubs in the voting after the NFL’s leading tackler was left off the team’s initial roster. It is believed that he will take Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher’s spot on the team. Urlacher suffered a major knee injury in the Bears’ season finale.

The Redskins linebacker finished the season with 166 tackles, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions. The former undrafted free-agent set a career high in tackles this season. He also clinched his 12th consecutive campaign with 110 or more tackles.
