After an improbable 10-6 season, the Redskins' efforts this year were rewarded with several players earning a Pro Bowl berth. Even with Robert Griffin III recovering and Trent Williams out after an unfortunate altercation in a nightclub Friday night, the Redskins were still well represented with Ryan Kerrigan, London Fletcher, and Lorenzo Alexander all making it to Hawaii. Kerrigan appeared in the first Pro Bowl in his young career, replacing San Francisco's Aldon Smith. The honor was well deservedas Kerrigan became the main outside rushing threat for the Redskins after the early-season injury to Brian Orakpo. He recorded two tackles on the day and an experience he will never forget. London Fletcher made his fourth-straight Pro Bowl after another remarkable season in which he extended his consecutive games streak to 240. Fletcher was named an NFC captain for the game, showing the amount of respect he garners from around the league. He finished the game with four tackles. But it was Alexander who stole the show tonight for the Redskins This was Alexander's first Pro Bowl appearance and he took full advantage of the spotlight. He was an impact player on special teams this year because of his ability to quickly make his way to the ball carrier. It was no different in Hawaii. On every kickoff, Alexander always was among the first down the field. Whenever the returner went down, you could see Alexander's burgundy and gold helmet in the play. His efforts did not go unnoticed as Alexander began to get more playing time on defense in the second half. He finished the game with a team-high five tackles.
Alexander, Redskins shine in Pro Bowl
