The Vikings now have five players headed for Hawaii to play in the Pro Bowl.
We have already mentioned that Adrian Peterson, Jerome Felton, Blair Walsh and Jared Allen are already making their Pro Bowl plans and now we can add linebacker Chad Greenway to that list.
Greenway was originally voted as an alternate player for the annual honor, and will be replacing the injured Cowboy linebacker DeMarcus Ware. This is the second time Greenway has attended the Pro Bowl, and it is his fifth straight season of leading the Vikings in tackles.
He has been credited with 148 total tackles this season in addition to three sacks, an interception, and two fumble recoveries.
We may need two hands to count the number of Viking Pro Bowlers this way as more could still be added to the roster. Center John Sullivan and left tackle Matt Kalil are both reported to be alternates and Blair Walsh is campaigning to get Cullen Loeffler in as the NFC’s long snapper.
