Sean Lee to replace LB Luke Kuechly in 2017 NFL Pro Bowl
There's still more football to be played this season for Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee, and this time it's in Orlando, FL.
Sean Lee will play in the NFL Pro Bowl, after all.
The veteran linebacker was initially snubbed by voters leading to a firestorm of backlash from fans of the Dallas Cowboys. Lee would ultimately get the last laugh in that regard, however, as he was then named a First Team All-Pro at his position.
A much more prestigious honor, as it stands.
Unfortunately for the Cowboys, however, a game-winning field goal by Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby ended their now historic year which frees up Lee to head to Orlando, FL. He'll replace Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly at the post.
He'll join the following Cowboys' on the trip:
- Dak Prescott (Quarterback) - Backup
- Tyron Smith (Tackle) - Starter [Fourth Pro Bowl]
- Travis Frederick (Center) - Starter [Third Pro Bowl]
- Zack Martin (Guard) - Starter [Third Pro Bowl]
- Ezekiel Elliott (Running back) - Starter
It'll mark the second consecutive Pro Bowl the veteran has participated in, as he was also snubbed in 2015 but was named as a fill-in Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston.
It's hardly the consolation prize Lee was hoping for this season, but he deserves the honor nonetheless.
