Miles Austin replaces DeSean Jackson on Pro Bowl roster

Miles Austin just picked up a last-minute weekend getaway.

The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver was just added to the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster, the team announced. He will replace Philadelphia’s DeSean Jackson, who has been forced to pull out of the game.

It marks the second consecutive Pro Bowl season for Austin, who made 69 receptions for 1,041 yards and seven touchdowns.

Despite a poor season, one that cost Wade Phillips his job , the Cowboys are now represented by six players in Honolulu. That just doesn’t seem right, does it?
