Drew Brees Heading To Pro Bowl
For many New Orleans Saints fans, the calendar year of 2012 couldn't have ended quick enough. 2013 is off to a better start. Sean Payton signed an extension, then Drew Brees announced he would be heading to Hawaii in two weeks for the Pro Bowl.
Despite leading the NFL in touchdowns (43) and passing yards (5177), Brees was not initially selected to the Pro Bowl, but was the first alternate at the quarterback position. Washington Redskins rookie QB Robert Griffin III suffered a knee injury, keeping him from attending the NFL's All-Star game.
