Fins’ Jarvis Landry Added To AFC Pro Bowl Roster

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry was added to the AFC’s roster for the 2018 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced earlier this week.

Landry, who was added as an injury replacement for Houston Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins, will be a Pro Bowler for the third straight year.

The 25-year-old, four-year veteran hauled in a league-high 112 catches with 987 yards and a career-high nine touchdowns. Landry also broke his own single-season, Dolphins franchise record for receptions (110 catches in 2015) while becoming just the fourth player in league history to record at least five receptions in all 16 games – joining Jimmy Smith (2001), Pierre Garcon (2013) and Antonio Brown (2013 and 2014).

Even though Landry has been admonished for his tendency to let his emotions get the best of him, his 400 career receptions are the most in the NFL through the first four seasons of a player’s career and he already ranks sixth in Dolphins history.

Landry’s addition gives the Dolphins two players that will participate in the NFL’s January 28th “all-star game”, which will be played in Orlando’s Camping World Stadium and broadcast on ESPN, as safety Reshad Jones was initially voted on the roster.
