Lorenzo Alexander Makes Most of First Pro Bowl Appearance
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Lorenzo Alexander made the most of his first trip to the Pro Bowl. The 29-year-old “everything man” for the Washington Redskins led the NFC squad in tackles with five, including one for a loss.
Alexander, who transitioned to inside linebacker prior to the start of the 2012 season, was voted to the game as the NFC’s special teams representative.
Fellow Redskins linebacker London Fletcher had four tackles against an AFC offense plagued with miscues.
Ryan Kerrigan also notched a pair of tackles in the contest.
The linebacking trio were the only players of Washington’s five selections to suit up for the all-star contest.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III was scratched after having reconstructive knee surgery.
Left tackle Trent Williams was bumped from the game after requiring stitches following a skirmish inside a Honolulu night club. He was reportedly merely a victim in the brawl in which he was hit over the head with a champagne bottle and tasered according to multiple reports.
The NFC routed the AFC 62-35 and win their fourth Pro Bowl in their last six years.
