Surprisingly enough New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was left off the 2013 Pro Bowl roster after being on it for the last four consecutive times. However news came that he still might be able to play….as an alternate.
Brees wasn’t the only player from the Saints named as an alternate. Tight end Jimmy Graham as well as left tackle Jermon Bushrod were named as alternates in their positions.
Both Graham and Bushrod went to the Pro Bowl last time, but as starters on the NFC team. It was also the first time that both players had earned a trip to Hawaii in their career as a Saint.
