Lane Johnson named to the Pro Bowl

Lane Johnson was named to the NFC's Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday morning. He will replace Green Bay's David Bakhtiari, who is unable to participate due to injury.

Johnson is the sixth Eagle to be named to the Pro Bowl squad along with guard Brandon Brooks, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, tight end Zach Ertz, center Jason Kelce, and long snapper Rick Lovato. The all-star game is this Sunday in Orlando.

Fittingly enough, Johnson is the only true right tackle on the NFC squad as Bakhtiari, Dallas' Tyron Smith, and New Orleans' Terron Armstead are all left tackles.

This is Johnson's third consecutive Pro Bowl nomination. He is only the third offensive tackle in franchise history to earn Pro Bowl honors in at least three straight seasons joining Frank "Bucko" Kilroy (1953-55) and Jason Peters (2010-12, 2014-17).

The fourth overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, Johnson also earned first-team All-Pro honors in the Super Bowl-winning 2017 campaign. He was rewarded with his second long-term contract extension in November through 2025.
