Jay Ajayi, Jarvis Landry join AFC Pro Bowl roster

The process of adding players to the Pro Bowl roster officially has begun. Primarily because the process of Pro Bowl players bowing out officially has begun.

Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi and receiver Jarvis Landry have been added to the AFC squad, based on the injury-related withdrawals of Bills running back LeSean McCoy and Bengals receiver A.J. Green.

Ajayi rushed for 1,272 yards, and Landry generated 1,136 receiving yards. It’s only the second time in franchise history that the Dolphins had a 1,000-yard rusher and 1,000-yard receiver in the same season.

Plenty of additional players undoubtedly will be added to the Pro Bowl roster in the coming days, due either to real injuries or embellished injuries or a genuine desire not to spend a week in Orlando when, in past years, a Pro Bowl berth would have meant a one-week trip to Hawaii.

    Well deserved for both.

    Congrats guys. The first selections are usually overrated anyway.

    no wonder why they’ve sucked for so long.

    Welcome to the modern NFL. You’re only 20 years late

    49% of his rushing yards in 3 games. Great games ? Yes but terribly inconsistent.

    The media fixates on Odell Beckham Jr but Miami drafted the LSU wide receiver without all the baggage. Jarvis Landry is sneaky good and it’s great to see him rewarded.

    and is this supposed to be the norm for all teams? Considering the Patriots have only done this 4 times in their franchise history it must not be that great.

    67% of those 3 games against your Bills

    So, I guess MIA’s season isn’t over after all.

    Very well deserved. Landry is a tough cookie. Hopefully, Ajayi follows suit. Future looks bright. Here’s to competition and rivalries. Bring it.

    Nearly 1300 yards rushing and didn’t even start until week 4, seems pretty impressive to me.

  11. onebuffalove716 says: Jan 11, 2017 7:45 PM

    Yes I’m fully aware of that. I didn’t say he sucked said he was woefully inconsistent and he is not a pro bowl running back.

    @finsphan

    I’m sure the Pats just cheated their way to all 4 occurrences, so they’re not exactly the benchmark with which to compare.
    Just ask anyone outside of NE, they’ll be glad to tell you all about it.
    A team known for spreading the ball around the yard to multiple receivers like NE isn’t exactly a good comparison

    Anyway, if my original post is wrong, then they must have sucked for 20 years for some other reason

    Only the 2nd time they’ve had a 1000 yard receiver and running back? Wow..that explains a lot right there..

  14. igotgamenj says: Jan 11, 2017 11:29 PM

    only 4 backs in the HISTORY of the NFL to rush for three 200 yard games and Jay Ajayi is one of them …Nuff said

    Bills sound butt hurt to me. Good times.

    If The Tanman hadn’t got hurt we could have had a trio of Dolph’s from our much heralded offence.
