On Thursday, the NFL announced this year’s Pro Bowl rosters, decided by coaches, players, and fans. The Ravens are known to send a few players to the all-star game each year, with this being no exception. The Ravens will send three players to this year’s Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida. Guard, Marshal Yanda, safety, Eric Weddle, and inside linebacker, C.J. Mosley are all invited to participate. The NFL also named two Ravens as Pro Bowl alternates. The two alternates are kicker, Justin Tucker and left tackle, Ronnie Stanley. Tucker is the first alternate, and Stanley is a second alternate, meaning Tucker would be prioritized to fill in at his position, while Stanley would be second in line.
Each of the Ravens selected to the Pro Bowl has already played in it before. Marshal Yanda attended the Pro Bowl for six straight years, from 2011 to 2016. He was absent in 2017, only to make his return this year in 2018. Eric Weddle attended five Pro Bowls prior to his sixth invitation this year. He played in the all-star game in 2011, 2013, and 2014. Since becoming a Raven in 2016, Weddle has attended the Pro Bowl every year. This Pro Bowl will be C.J. Mosley’s fourth in five years. Mosley first participated in the Pro Bowl after his rookie season in 2014. He was not selected to represent the Ravens in 2015 but was named to the Pro Bowl in 2016, 2017, and now 2018.
First alternate, Justin Tucker, was selected to the Pro Bowl twice in his career (2013 and 2016), despite being the league’s most accurate kicker of all time. Second alternate, Ronnie Stanley, has not been to a Pro Bowl yet in his young career. If he is called to fill in, it would be his first appearance since entering the league in 2016.
The Pro Bowl will take place on January 27, 2019, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. The game will be broadcasted live on ESPN at 3:00 P.M.
