The NFL will announce the rosters for the Pro Bowl at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday and a pair of Washington Redskins players will likely get significant consideration.

Linebacker London Fletcher leads all NFL players with 163 tackles this season and is 18 clear of the Cleveland Browns' D'Qwell Jackson, who is second in the league with 145 tackles. The next closest NFC players is Minnesota Vikings' Chad Greenway, who has 144 tackles on the year. Fletcher also has two sacks, two interceptions and three forced fumbles to his credit this season.

Fletcher, 36, is in his 14th NFL season out of John Carroll and despite his age, the 5-foot-10, 245 pound backer continues to be a key contribute to the Redskins defense.

Fletcher's fellow linebacker, Lorenzo Alexander, will get a look for his special teams contributions.
