Word of changes to Pro Bowl rosters continue to roll in on Tuesday.

The Eagles announced that defensive end Josh Sweat will be headed to Las Vegas to join the NFC roster for this weekend’s game. Sweat is taking the place of 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa.

Sweat is the third Eagles player added to the roster. He joins defensive tackle Javon Hargrave and kicker Jake Elliott in that group while cornerback Darius Slay and center Jason Kelce were original selections.

Sweat had 45 tackles, 7.5 sacks, and a forced fumble in 16 games for the Eagles this season. He missed their playoff loss to the Buccaneers because of what was described as a life-threatening medical situation, but it appears he’s made a full recovery.

  1. Congratulations on a very good season, Sweaty.

    We need to get you help at the other edge. A guy who can open things up for you by bringing significant pressure from the other side would be nice. But for the moment, I’m sure we’d both accept someone who doesn’t commit game-changing, stupid penalties (looking at YOU, Derrick Barnett).

  2. With the contract they gave sweat, I’d like to see more out of him. I’m sure he’ll continue to improve and hopefully philly can bring in another solid pass rusher on the edge on the opposite side of sweat.
