The Washington Redskins announced that linebackers London Fletcher and Brian Orakpo have been added to the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster.
Orakpo replaces Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, who’ll be playing in Super Bowl XLV. Fletcher will make his second straight Pro Bowl, and second overall in his 13-season career, replacing Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, who has opted out of the All-Star game with an undisclosed injury.
Fletcher, 35, once again started all 16 games in 2010, totaling 136 tackles, with 2.5 quarterback sacks and an interception. Orakpo, who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie, is headed back after 56 tackles and 8.5 quarterback sacks in 15 games in 2010.
