D-Brick headed to the Pro Bowl
Make it four Pro Bowlers for the 2009 New York Jets.
Today, the NFL added Jets LT D’ Brickashaw Ferguson to the AFC’s Pro Bowl roster. Ferguson will replace Miami’s Jake Long, who is out with an injury. Ferguson, who joins teammates Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, and Alan Faneca, will be making the first Pro Bowl appearance of his career.
It is only fitting that the fourth-year man out of Virginia reaches the Pro Bowl, capping off what has been an impressive season for the 6-foot-6, 310 pound left tackle.
Ferguson has been pivotal in the success of the Jets’ running game, which leads the league with 172.3 yards per game. He has also helped the Jets offensive line total the third-fewest quarterback hits in the NFL.
