Jeffery replaces Megatron on Pro Bowl roster

Lake Forest, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been added the 2014 Pro Bowl roster, replacing the injured Calvin Johnson, who is unable to participate due to injury.

Jeffery will be making his first career Pro Bowl appearance after compiling career bests of 89 catches for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns receiving this season. He finished seventh in the league in yards from scrimmage with 1,526.

"Just being from where I came from to where I am now, what I'm doing ... it's just special to be part of the success we're having as a team," Jeffery said. "I want to thank my Mama and my family. I'm going to continue to make you all proud."

Jeffery is the third Bears player to be named to the 2014 Pro Bowl joining running back Matt Forte and fellow wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Jeffery and Marshall are the first pair of Bears wide receivers to be named to the Pro Bowl in the same season.
