Another honor added to the Seattle rookie’s fantastic resume: Pro Bowl quarterback.

 

The Seahawks Russell Wilson was added to the NFC pro Bowl Roster Monday after Falcon’s quarterback Matt Ryan pulled out of the all-star game with a shoulder injury suffered in Sunday’s NFC championship game against the 49ers.

Washington’s Robert Griffin III and Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers were voted to the squad but also have injuries, so alternates Drew Brees from New Orleans and Eli Manning from the New York Giants will play in addition to Wilson.

Wilson will join fellow Seahawks Marshawn Lynch, Max Unger, Leon Washington, Russell Okung and Earl Thomas in the game this Sunday in Hawaii.

Wilson led the Seahawks to an 11-5 record during the regular season and then the franchise’s first road playoff victory since 1983 when they beat the Redskins in a wild-card game. Along the way, Wilson threw 26 touchdown passes to tie the NFL rookie record and also broke the mark for rookie passer rating (100.0).
