Saints G Larry Warford Added To NFC Pro Bowl Roster
While their season ended in heartbreaking fashion last week, the New Orleans Saints coaching staff actually has one more "game" left to work, as do several members of the team.
Sean Payton and his staff will be coaching the NFC in the Pro Bowl this Sunday in Orlando, with a week of "practice" set to begin this week.
The Saints are well represented, as six players were announced to the roster last month. Quarterback Drew Brees, running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, wide receiver Michael Thomas, defensive end Cam Jordan and cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
The guys will now be joined by another teammate.
Saints guard Larry Warford was added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster as a replacement for Eagles Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks, bringing New Orleans total player in NFL's All-Star game to 7. Brooks won't be participating in the exhibition, as he'll be preparing to play in Super Bowl LII.
Warford joined the Saints last March on a 4 year deal, after spending the first 4 seasons of his career with the Detroit Lions.
