Pro Bowl 2012 Rosters: London Fletcher Shut Out

The Washington Redskins' London Fletcher leads the National Football League in tackles this season with 163. That's 18 more than the Cleveland Browns' D'Qwell Jackson who is No. 2 in the league, and 19 than the Minnesota Vikings' Chad Greenway, No. 3 across the league in tackles and No. 2 in the NFC. Fletcher also has two sacks, two interceptions and three forced fumbles.

Fletcher will not be headed to the Pro Bowl, however, and neither will any of his teammates. The 2012 rosters for the game were announced Tuesday and the Redskins were completely shut out.

The Dallas Cowboys' DeMarcus Ware, the Green Bay Packers' Clay Matthews and the Chicago Bears' Lance Briggs were selected to man the outside linebacker spots for the NFL squad while the San Francisco 49ers' Patrick Willis and the Chicago Bears' Brian Urlacher were chosen as middle linebackers.

Fletcher, however, will not be joining them, which must be a tough pill to swallow after racking up as many tackles as he did.
