WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo will make his third Pro Bowl appearance.
His selection to the 2014 Pro Bowl, replacing San Francisco linebacker Ahmad Brooks, means he’ll join fellow Redskins representatives (running back) Alfred Morris and (offensive lineman) Trent Williams.
Orakpo had arguably the best season of his career in 2013, posting his second highest sack total (10), and career bests in fumbles recovered (2) and total tackles (43).
His two previous Pro Bowl appearances came in his first two seasons in the league, in 2009 and 2010. He’s scheduled to hit Free Agency this offseason, a process he’
said he looks forward to experiencing for the first time in his career.
