NFL Pro Bowl roster 2013: Three Cardinals in Honolulu

USA TODAY Sports

Despite a disappointing season, the Cardinals still sent three players to Honolulu for the Pro Bowl.

The Cardinals season may not have gone well, but Arizona will still be represented by three players at the Pro Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 27. Although only Patrick Peterson was originally selected to the Pro Bowl, both Larry Fitzgerald and Daryl Washington were named replacements for players who withdrew either due to injury or because they are playing in the Super Bowl.

Cornerback Patrick Peterson was selected to the NFC Pro Bowl roster, as a backup behind Bears cornerbacks Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings. Peterson made the team last year as a return specialist, but was asked on the roster for his defensive work this year.

When San Francisco linebackers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman made the Super Bowl, Washington was named one of their replacements along with Redskins linebacker London Fletcher. This is the first Pro Bowl selection for Washington.

Despite a down year, Fitzgerald was selected as the replacement for Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who will miss the game with a hip injury. This is the seventh selection for Fitzgerald, who now only trails Hall of Fame safety Larry Wilson for most selection of any Cardinals player all-time. Full Pro Bowl rosters can be found at NFL.com.
