Mangold and Cro get Pro Bowl call
HONOLULU, HI – The Jets, who’s roster was shut out in Pro Bowl voting this season suddenly have two players on their way to Honolulu. Center Nick Mangold who was voted a first alternate will replace Seahawks center Max Unger who can’t play because his team is in the Superbowl.
Cornerback Cromartie, a second alternate, who self admittedly is coming off possibly the worse season of his career, was added to the roster due to Patriots CB Aqib Talib getting injured during the AFC Championship this past Sunday against Denver.
This will be the fifth Pro Bowl appearance for Mangold and the third for Cromartie. The Pro Bowl takes place this Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu and is being broadcast by NBC.
