Philadelphia Eagles: 6 players lead NFC in Pro Bowl votes for their position
The Philadelphia Eagles may be sending quite a few players to the Pro Bowl this year.
It has been roughly a month since the 2017 NFL Pro Bowl voting has opened up. The Philadelphia Eagles had a hefty list of candidates who were available on the ballots. With just one week left of voting this year, the Eagles currently have six players who have the most amount of votes in the NFC for their position.
Last season, the Eagles only had three players go to the Pro Bowl. Defensive tackle, Fletcher Cox, Left tackle Jason Peters and punt returner/running back Darren Sproles. This year, the Eagles may end up sending more than a few players to Orlando, Florida in the wintertime.
Obviously, the goal would be to avoid sending any players due to the fact that they made it to the Super Bowl. But it would still be cool to see most of these guys get recognized for how well they played this year. So far, it looks like six guys may have their ticket to the Pro Bowl ready and waiting for them for when the season is over. Here are the respected NFC leaders so far.
