The Texans had a miserable season, but they now have three Pro Bowlers.
The team announced Friday that left tackle Duane Brown has been added to the Pro Bowl team. He replaces Eagles left tackle Jason Peters on the list of players that will be drafted into teams by Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders later this month. Brown joins Joe Thomas of the Browns, Joe Staley of the 49ers, Branden Albert of the Chiefs, Tyron Smith of the Cowboys and Trent Williams of the Redskins as this year’s Pro Bowl tackles.
It will be the second trip to the Pro Bowl for Brown, who was selected to the AFC team in 2012. Brown was also a first-team All Pro last season and remained the foundation of the Texans offensive line while things were falling apart almost everywhere else during a 2-14 season that ended with 14 straight losses.
Defensive end J.J. Watt and wide receiver Andre Johnson make up the rest of the Texans’ Pro Bowl contingent.
