Earl Thomas pulls out of Pro Bowl
Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has pulled out of the Pro Bowl for health reasons. Thomas is a five-time Pro Bowl selection. He had five interceptions this season. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the players, coaches, and most importantly, all of the fans who voted me into this year’s Pro Bowl," Thomas wrote on Instagram. "I have always considered being selected as one of the highest honors bestowed on any player in the league. While I value the significance of being named to the Pro Bowl, I unfortunately will not be able to participate in this year’s upcoming game. It is without question that I will miss taking the trip out to Hawaii and enjoying the festivities with my fellow NFL brothers and all the fans, but I look forward to getting my body fully healthy and working to bring another Super Bowl home to Seattle!” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
