LONDON FLETCHER WILL PLAY IN THIRD CAREER PRO BOWL

ASHBURN, Va. – The National Football League announced today that Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher will play in the 2012 Pro Bowl. The annual contest of the AFC and NFC's best will take place Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

The Pro Bowl appearance will be Fletcher’s third consecutive and the third total for his career. NFL GSIS credited Fletcher with a league-leading 166 tackles this season, his highest single-season total since the NFL began independently tracking tackle data in 2001. The Redskins coaching staff credited Fletcher with 209 tackles (123 solo) for the season. He matched his career high for tackles awarded by coaches, established as a member of the Buffalo Bills in 2002.

In addition, Fletcher also added 1.5 sacks, 14 quarterback pressures, 11 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two interceptions.

With Fletcher’s addition to the roster, the Redskins have had at least one Pro Bowl player for 18 straight seasons. The only year Washington did not have a Pro Bowler was 1993. His addition represents the 96th Pro Bowl berth by players coached at the NFL level by Mike Shanahan.

Fletcher’s selection is the 19th by a Redskins linebacker since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Fletcher (2009-11) is responsible for three of the selections, joining Brian Orakpo (2009-10), Marcus Washington (2004), LaVar Arrington (2001-03), Ken Harvey (1994-97), Wilbur Marshall (1992) and Chris Hanburger (1972-76).

Good news indeed. Should've been the first choice and not an alternate though. Eh, we'll take it anyway. Congrats to London.
