Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher was among the biggest Pro Bowl 2012 snubs when the rosters were announced on Tuesday, but it looks like he may make the game after all. Fletcher told reporters that he was named as one of the alternates, according to Rick Maese of the Washington Post. Linebacker and special teams ace Lorenzo Alexander was also named an alternate, according to our own Daniel Shiferaw.
Neither player would say whether they were first alternates or second alternates. First alternates would play in the game if one player at their position drops out due to injury. Second alternates would need multiple players to drop out.
Fletcher had a standout season yet again, but was beaten out by Brian Urlacher of the Chicago Bears and Patrick Willis of the San Francisco 49ers. Alexander was beaten out for the special teams spot by Corey Graham, who also plays for the Bears.
