The league announced Pro Bowl rosters Tuesday, and for the first time since 2000 the rosters won’t include a single Seattle player.
Former Seahawks guard Steve Hutchinson, now a guard with Minnesota, made it. So did fullback Leonard Weaver, now with Philadelphia. But Seattle was one of six teams in the league not to have a player named to the Pro Bowl roster. Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Kansas City and Tampa Bay were the others.
The Vikings led the league with eight players chosen to the Pro Bowl, while Dallas, Indianapolis and Philadelphia had six apiece.
It’s the first time in nine years Seattle hasn’t had a player chosen to the Pro Bowl. Last year, linebacker Julian Peterson and tackle Walter Jones were chosen.
