Middle linebacker Brian Urlacher will lead a brigade of six Bears to the Pro Bowl, the team's largest contingent since sending six players following the 1990 season.
Five of the Pro Bowlers play on the Bears' No. 1-ranked defense. While Urlacher will make his fifth trip in six NFL seasons, safety Mike Brown, cornerback Nathan Vasher, linebacker Lance Briggs and defensive tackle Tommie Harris are being honored for the first time.
Brian Urlacher will make his fifth trip to the Pro Bowl in six NFL seasons.
The Bears offense will be represented by center Olin Kreutz, a Hawaii native who will be making his fifth straight Pro Bowl appearance in his home state.
It is nice to see Briggs and Harris get the honor. It is a bit disappointing that Wale and/or Brown didn't make it, but maybe after injuries they can find their way there.
