RENTON, Wash. - Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster today. Lynch replaces San Francisco's Frank Gore who is unable to participate due to illness.
Lynch set career highs in rushing yards (1,204), carries (285) and rushing touchdowns (12) this season. He set a club record with at least one touchdown in 11-straight games, breaking Shaun Alexander's 2005 record of nine. Lynch became Seattle's first 1,000-yard rusher since Alexander set a club record in 2005.
Lynch is the fifth Seattle player to earn a spot on the NFC roster, joining cornerback Brandon Browner, safety Kam Chancellor, fullback Michael Robinson and safety Earl Thomas. Seattle's five representatives are the most since sending seven after the 2005 season.
