As the many replacements were announced for the Pro Bowl rosters, one name that did not appear is Eagles cornerback Sheldon Brown.

Brown was named a second alternate when the rosters were initially announced and the opportunity was there for him to make his Pro Bowl debut. However, Brown turned down an invitation, citing personal reasons, the Eagles told the Daily News' Les Bowen.

At the time, Brown said he hadn't been counting on making it, though he'd rate this season among the top two or three of his 8-year career. He said he can't fault the role of stats in the process, even if they don't tell the whole story.

"It will kind of mess with you, but it's something you can't control," Brown said then.
