Lane Johnson Named to Third Consecutive Pro Bowl

ERIC HARTLINE/USA TODAY SPORTS
Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson was added to Pro Bowl as an alternate, Adam Caplan first reported on Monday.

Johnson wasn’t pleased about being snubbed when Pro Bowl selections were originally announced in December. It will be Johnson’s third consecutive Pro Bowl appearance.


Johnson, 29, was graded as the second-highest tackle in the league at 88.8 by Pro Football Focus. He allowed only one sack and four quarterback hits. He performed at an elite level as a run-blocker – receiving the highest grade (92.6) by PFF.

In November, he was rewarded with 4-year, $72M contract for his on-field performance, signing the richest contract for an NFL offensive lineman in league history.

He missed four games this season -- one game with a concussion and the final three regular season games with high ankle sprain.

Johnson will join former Oklahoma players – tight end Mark Andrews, tackle Orlando Brown and punter Tress Way.

The 2020 Pro Bowl will be played Sunday 2 PM/CT on ESPN/ABC.
