Falcons WR Julio Jones drops out of Pro Bowl

New, comments

Julio out, Mike Evans in.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has been replaced in this year’s NFL Pro Bowl due to injury. He will be replaced by Buccaneers WR Mike Evans.

Julio finished the 2018 season as the NFL’s leader in receiving yards with 1,677 and became the first player in NFL history with five straight seasons of over 1,400 receiving yards. Julio has also been selected to every Pro Bowl since 2012, with the exception of the 2013 season when he played only five games due to injury.

His replacement will be Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans, who put up an impressive year of his own, finishing third in the NFL in receiving yards. Falcons center Alex Mack was also selected to the NFC roster, but there’s been no news about his status for the exhibition game.

The 2019 NFL Pro Bowl returns to Orlando on January 27th and will be televised nationally by ESPN and also simulcast on ABC.
