Juszczyk got his wish Tuesday night when he joined guard Marshal Yanda, kicker Justin Tucker, and inside linebacker C.J. Mosley as the team’s representatives for the 2017 Pro Bowl. After Wednesday’s practice, Juszczyk recalled that conversation with Koch.
“I said the first time I’m going to the Pro Bowl, I want it to be on my own schedule and because of what I did,” he said.
Juszczyk, 25, earned his first Pro Bowl invite since being chosen by the organization in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL draft. The 6-foot-1, 240-pound fullback leads all players at his position in receptions (33) and yards (255) – a feat he accomplished last year with 41 catches for 321 yards and four touchdowns.
