Jones, Baker top positions in NFC Pro Bowl voting

Posted by Darren Urban on December 16, 2017 – 1:46 pm

Fan voting — which accounts for a third of the Pro Bowl vote — ended this week, and the Cardinals had a pair of players that ended up with the most votes at their position in the NFC. Both Chandler Jones at outside linebacker and Budda Baker on special teams got more votes than anyone else in the conference, which usually is a pretty good harbinger of Pro Bowl status.

We will see — the coaches get another third of the vote and the players the final third, so there is a still a chance for it to go drastically different, especially on special teams when only one player per conference is chosen. In all, the Cardinals had five players to finish in the top 10 at their position in the fans’ Pro Bowl vote. The Cards’ complete list:

— OLB Chandler Jones (fourth in voting in the NFL, first in the NFC)
— ST Budda Baker (1,1)
— WR Larry Fitzgerald (5,3)
— CB Patrick Peterson (7,4)
— FS Tyrann Mathieu (7,4)

The Pro Bowl rosters will be announced Tuesday at 6 p.m. Arizona time. The game will be played Jan. 28.

    Assuming that this fan voting has not been taken over by fanatical Cards fans that are staying up all night to put ballots in for our players, I think it is really great to see so many of our guys being recognized during a season that has not been a good one for the team.

    Mathieu doesn’t belong on this list.

    Whoa! I see that the Bengals just fired Marv Lewis and that the Cardinals are “Prepping for Coaching Search.”..in case BA retires. Better news would be that they were looking to clear out the FO and start over.
    Going forward, one has to wonder how this will impact some of our players return.
    Interesting times, seems that Black Monday is beginning….

    Personally, I feel Budda Baker has been “a gem” of a draft pick… guy is everywhere on the field! He’s just getting started too, and think he has a bright future with the team…
