Andre Johnson skipping Pro Bowl

This year Andre Johnson was selected to his seventh Pro Bowl.

He won't be going.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced to reporters that receiver DeSean Jackson will replace Johnson in Hawaii this year.

The reason for Johnson passing isn't quite clear, but he's been to several. He missed the Pro Bowl following the 2010 season, but went last year along with eight of his teammates.

Johnson didn't get any All-Pro votes, but received the Pro Bowl selection after his fourth season with at least 1,400 yards (1,407 this year) and his seventh season with at least 1,000 yards.

The Eagles and Texans both gained a Pro Bowler because of a defection by the other. When Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters bowed out, Texans left tackle Duane Brown replaced him.
