Made it to the Probowl

Posted by Richard Sherman on Tuesday, January 26, 2016

While fellow Seahawks defensive backs Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor have opted out of this year’s Pro Bowl, Richard Sherman is playing.

He posted the video above to Facebook Monday after arriving in Hawaii, evidently with son Rayden in tow.

It will be the first time in Sherman’s five-year career that he’s played in the Pro Bowl. Recall that he didn’t make it as a rookie in 2011, when he entered Seattle’s starting lineup midway through the season. He was somehow not voted to the Pro Bowl in 2012 despite being named a first-team All-Pro then was selected in both 2013 and 2014 but couldn’t play with the Seahawks in the Super Bowl.

“We’ll see how this goes,” he says in the video.

The other Seahawks voted to the Pro Bowl are quarterback Russell Wilson, defensive lineman Michael Bennett, middle linebacker Bobby Wagner and kick returner Tyler Lockett.
