    • Trent Williams Earns 3rd Pro Bowl Selection

      For Immediate Release

      TRENT WILLIAMS EARNS THIRD CONSECUTIVE
      PRO BOWL SELECTION

      LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The National Football League announced today that tackle Trent Williams has been selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl. The annual contest of the NFL's best will take place Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

      In addition, linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and running back Alfred Morris were selected as alternates.

      Williams’ selection is the third of his career and his third consecutive selection since 2012. His selection this season is the 16th by a Redskins offensive tackle since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, joining Chris Samuels (2001-02, 05-08), Jim Lachey (1990-91), Mark May (1988) and Joe Jacoby (1983-86). Between Williams and Samuels, Redskins left tackles have been selected to seven of the last 10 Pro Bowls. Williams joins Samuels and Jacoby as the only Redskins tackles to make three consecutive trips to the Pro Bowl since the merger.

      “It’s extremely humbling to know that your hard work and dedication pays off again and that people around the league – my peers – recognize my efforts and continue to vote me as one of the league’s best,” Williams said.

      Williams, 26, is in his fourth season as an offensive captain for the Redskins and has been among the league’s top left tackles since being selected No. 4 overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. He has played 70 career games with the Redskins with 69 starts, including starting all 14 games in which he has played for Washington this season.

      In each of his three Pro Bowl seasons, Williams has helped Redskins running back Alfred Morris eclipse 1,000 rushing yards, contributing to Morris becoming only the second player in team history with three consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons. Williams and his colleagues on the offensive line have helped Morris to 3,919 career rushing yards, the 15th-most by an NFL player in his first three seasons in NFL history. Williams, Morris and the group have been an integral part in Washington’s 6,460 rushing yards since 2012, the third-most in the NFL in that time frame.

      “We’d like to congratulate Trent. He’s been our captain from Day 1 and obviously has had a good year,” Head Coach Jay Gruden said. “Despite being a little bit banged up, he’s fought through some injuries and still played at a very high level and we’re all proud of him.”

      With Williams’ selection this year, the Redskins have had at least one Pro Bowl player for 21 straight seasons. The only year Washington has not had a Pro Bowler in team history was 1993.
