The Pro Bowl returns to Orlando this year, rather than a trip to beautiful Hawaii or the Super Bowl host city of Minneapolis. It may not be scenic Honolulu, but the NFL Pro Bowlers do get to spend some time at Disney World this year. Although the Pro Bowl had become a mess from 2014-2016, the game rebounded in 2017. Now, interest in the NFL’s All-Star Game will at an all-time high for Who Dat Nation.
Amazingly, the New Orleans Saints have sent seven representatives to today's Pro Bowl, tying them for third most representatives from any team this year. Here are this year’s Saints Pro Bowlers to watch today:
QB - Drew Brees
RB - Mark Ingram
RB - Alvin Kamara
WR - Michael Thomas
G - Larry Warford
DE - Cameron Jordan
CB - Marshon Lattimore
This is extremely impressive, considering the Saints only sent one representative to the Pro Bowl in each of the last two years (Jordan ‘16 and Brees ‘17). Not only that, but Sean Payton is coaching the NFC team this year, making this the most Saints-centric Pro Bowl we’ve ever seen. We obviously would have much rather these Saints be on the field next week for Super Bowl LII, but this is a satisfying consolation in the meantime.
