Casey Wiegmann going To The Pro Bowl

I just thought that I would share a little golden nugget of information that I just received over the up and coming Pro Bowl. By the way Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall are already attending it.

Apparently Casey Wiegmann who was formerly the first alternate for the Pro Bowl if someone happened to get injured and could not attend the game has been advanced to a actual Pro Bowler. 

But Kevin Mawae who was originally scheduled to start there was injured in the playoffs and will be out for 4 months to repair a a triceps tendon tear that will need surgery to fix. He was not able to attend the game and therefore Wiegmann is going to Hawaii.

While I would much rather see Ryan Clady there because he was simply more deserving it is still great Wiegmann will be there. This will be his first Pro Bowl after 13 seasons as a player. He was an alternate 3 other times.

Being my 13th year it means a lot more. Usually that’s when people start hitting their downside or are out of the league,” Wiegmann told the Rocky Mountain News. “Being in the Pro Bowl and having people respect the way I’ve been playing is definitely exciting for me.”

He also said that “it was tough playing in Kansas City with two Hall of Famers and possibly three, and it was luck of the draw. But I loved playing with those guys and learned a lot.”
