Tuesday night saw the 2020 Pro Bowl votes being revealed and a whopping seven players from the New Orleans Saints being named to the annual NFL all-star game.
Tackle Terron Armstead, quarterback Drew Brees, returner Deonte Harris, defensive end Cameron Jordan, cornerback Marshon Lattimore, kicker Wil Lutz and wide receiver Michael Thomas were selected to the NFC squad to play in the Pro Bowl, which will be held on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. All but Armstead and Brees were named as starters.
With eight Saints named to the Pro Bowl last year and seven in 2017, this marks the first time since the 2009-2011 campaigns that the Saints have had at least seven players in three consecutive seasons named to participate in the contest and 12th straight season that at least one player is a Pro Bowl selection.
With Brees’ 13th selection overall, he becomes only the ninth player to receive a selection to the Pro Bowl 13 times.
Jordan was named to his fifth Pro Bowl, tying Pro Football Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson for most selections in franchise history by a defensive end. Harris became the first return specialist for the Saints to receive a Pro Bowl nod since Michael Lewis since 2002 and the first rookie returner to don the black and gold since Tyrone Hughes in 1993.
