Antonio Cromartie named second alternate to 2014 NFL Pro Bowl

The New York Jets found out this evening that despite the excellent individual seasons some of their players are having, no one on the team was named to the initial list of Pro Bowl selections, although two players were named first alternates and one was named second alternate.

Muhammad Wilkerson, thought by many, including head coach Rex Ryan, to be on his way to his first NFL all-star game appearance, was named first alternate at defensive end, once the fans', players' and coaches' votes were tallied and combined.

Nick Mangold, selected to play in four consecutive Pro Bowls from 2008-11, has also come in as first alternate at center.

Antonio Cromartie, who played in the game last year for the first time as a Jet, was named a second alternate at cornerback.
