Trent Williams 2 DKLANHAM - The National Football League recently announced that three Washington Redskins players had been selected to participate in the 2018 Pro Bowl at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida on Jan. 28, 2018.

Among those selections are Ryan Kerrigan, Brandon Scherff, and Trent Williams. Linebacker Zach Brown and cornerback Josh Norman were selected as alternates.

Even though the Redskins had five Pro Bowl selections last season, Washington has now produced at least three Pro Bowl players in two-straight seasons for the first time since the 2012-2013.

Scherff and Williams have become the first Redskins offensive line pair to be named to the Pro Bowl in consecutive seasons since the Russ Grimm and Joe Jacoby did it four straight times following the 1983-86 seasons.

Williams earned his sixth Pro Bowl nod (6th consecutively) and now ties Len Hauss and Chris Samuels for the fifth-most selections in team history.

Scherff received his second consecutive selection of his career.

He has become the first Redskins, interior lineman, to earn multiple Pro Bowl selections since Pro Football Hall of Fame guard Grimm did so from 1983-86.

Kerrigan’s notched the third nod of his career (2nd consecutively). It marks the seventh time in the last nine years that a Redskins linebacker has earned Pro Bowl honors. Kerrigan is the first Redskins linebacker to earn back-to-back Pro Bowl honors since London Fletcher did for four straight years.

Kerrigan started all 110 regular season games for Washington since being selected with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
