SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The NFL announced the Pro Bowl rosters for the upcoming game on January 27 in Orlando, Florida. Former Utah star Eric Weddle and Utah State linebacker Bobby Wagner are representing the state of Utah in the Pro Bowl.

Weddle will make his sixth appearance in the Pro Bowl, representing the Baltimore Ravens. The All-Pro safety has 53 solo tackles, one sack and three pass deflections. He is in his third season with the Ravens after spending the first nine years of his 12 year career with the San Diego Chargers.

In Weddle’s career, he has been first team All-Pro twice, second team All-Pro three times and was the NFL’s interception leader in 2011.


Weddle will face his old team, the Chargers on Sunday.

The seven year pro has 69 solo tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, one fumble recoveries, one interception for a touchdown and 11 pass deflections.
