2012 Pro Bowl Selections: Larry Fitzgerald, Adrian Wilson, Patrick Peterson Represent Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals have one non-surprising returner to the Pro Bowl, and two solid players joining them.

Fitzgerald has just had the roughest time dealing with quarterback after quarterback the past few seasons. He's gone from Kurt Warner to Matt Leinart back to Kurt Warner to Derek Anderson to Kevin Kolb to John Skelton. His Cardinals have struggled as a football team the past few years, although they did manage to climb up back to semi-respectability this year. But Fitz hasn't really missed a beat in his production in 2011. He's caught 71 passes and averaged a pretty incredible 17.8 yards per catch on his way to another 1000+ yard season, and managed to get in the end zone eight times.

Adrian Wilson is probably a surprise selection, although he's definitely worth of inclusion from the safety position, notching 62 tackles, one sack and one interception. Patrick Peterson might not be as popular as Devin Hester yet, but the rookie out of LSU definitely had the better overall season, returning four punts for touchdowns and swinging the outcome of at least one or two Cardinals games.

Darnell Dockett also made the team as an alternate, finishing sixth overall among defensive linemen.
