Pro Bowl 2012 Rosters: Former Redskins Carlos Rogers And Andre Carter Selected For First Pro Bowl

While the Washington Redskins may have failed to place anyone in the 2012 Pro Bowl, a few former Skins had their names called when the rosters were announced on Tuesday night. Former Skin Andre Carter, who registered ten sacks this season, was one of eight New England Patriots named to the Pro Bowl. The Pats, along with the San Francisco 49ers, lead the league with eight each. It was Carter's first selection in his 11 year career, with the last five of those seasons coming with Washington.

In addition to Carter, former Redskin and current 49er Carlos Rogers was selected to his first Pro Bowl in his first season away from Washington. Rogers earned the starting cornerback spot in the game alongside Green Bay's Charles Woodson. Rogers is tied for second in the NFC with six interceptions, just one shy of Woodson's league leading mark.

With London Fletcher snubbed yet again, it could be an especially bitter pill to swallow with two former Skins elected to their first Pro Bowl just one season after suiting up in Washington.
