The Philadelphia Eagles landed another player on the Pro Bowl on Friday.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson was added to the roster, becoming the fifth member of the Eagles to make the team. He was named as a replacement for Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson, who opted not to make the trip to Honolulu for the game on Jan. 26.

In addition to Jackson, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, guard Evan Mathis and running back LeSean McCoy will also be playing. Tackle Jason Peters, who made the Pro Bowl for the sixth time, has decided not to play.

Jackson will be making his third appearance, having also earned berths in the 2009 and 2010 seasons. In 2009, he became the first player in league history to make it at two positions - wide receiver and punt returner.

This season, the 27-year-old led the Eagles with a career-high 82 receptions for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns during the regular season and caught three passes for 53 yards in the Eagles' 26-24 playoff loss to New Orleans. His 1,332 receiving yards rank second on the team's all-time list. Mike Quick, who is now an Eagles' radio analyst, set the record of 1,409 yards in 1983.

Most recently, Jackson was in the news after reportedly being robbed of $325,000 in cash and jewelry, plus a handgun, at his Philadelphia home last week. Jackson has since offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the incident.
