Left tackle Duane Brown becomes the latest Seahawk to be added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster. He replaces Philadelphia's Lane Johnson, who's unavailable with the Eagles playing in the Super Bowl. Brown played in 10 games in 2017, missing the first six while holding out before he was traded to Seattle from Houston. The Seahawks now have seven players who were either named to the Pro Bowl initially or added as alternates. Quarterback Russell Wilson, tight end Jimmy Graham, middle linebacker Bobby Wagner and free safety Earl Thomas were original selections while wide receiver Doug Baldwin and defensive lineman Michael Bennett were injury replacements. Graham and Wagner have opted out of the game, citing injuries.

The Eagles have had the flea flicker they used Sunday night in their playbook "forever," OC Frank Reich said today. They finally ran it. In talking with head coach Doug Pederson the night before, during the staff's weekly "first 15 plays" meeting, Reich first realized the play would be used. Pederson was committed that night to being aggressive offensively versus the Vikings.

Wearing a boot on his left foot, former Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph said on Tuesday in Mobile, Alabama, that he expects to be fine for the NFL combine next month and plans to fully participate in drills. He called his injury a "mid-foot sprain," and will be in the boot another week. Rudolph, the No. 5-ranked QB in the Class of 2018 by both Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr., isn't participating in on-field workouts at the Senior Bowl but is doing interviews with NFL teams and taking part in classroom sessions with the South team, which is coached by the Texans.
