Jets Revis Selected As Pro Bowl Starter; Mangold, Ferguson Named Backups
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has been selected to his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl, his third straight as a starter.
Center Nick Mangold was also picked Tuesday for his fourth Pro Bowl in a row, while left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson made it for the third consecutive year. Both Mangold and Ferguson will be backups for the game on Jan. 29 in Honolulu, a week before the Super Bowl.
Kick returner Joe McKnight, who leads the NFL in kickoff return average but has been slowed by injuries the past few weeks, is a first alternate. Linebacker David Harris and right guard Brandon Moore are second alternates.
Revis, in his fifth season, has 54 tackles, 21 passes defensed and four interceptions with a touchdown.
