Robert Quinn and Johnny Hekker Are Heading to the Pro Bowl

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The St. Louis Rams are finally sending more than one player to Hawaii.

For the first time since 2006, the St. Louis Rams will be sending multiple players to the Pro Bowl in January. The Rams will be sending defensive end Robert Quinn and second year punter Johnny Hekker off to Hawaii.

Neither of the selections is a surprise. Quinn is currently leading the league with 18 sacks and has been terrorizing opposing quarterbacks all season. Along the way, he continues to make a case for Defensive Player of the Year and the newly created Deacon Jones Award which was made to honor Rams great Deacon Jones, who passed away earlier this year.

Less of a lock was that Hekker made the roster for the Pro Bowl. The last time they showed the fan vote, Hekker was way down on the list. Nonetheless, Hekker has also been great this season, leading the NFL with a net average of 43.8 yards per kick, and is currently third with that average in the history of the NFL. Hekker has really came along way from being inconsistent in his rookie season, to just being a lights out punter that should help the Rams win week in and week out.

Jake Long was fifth in the voting before he got injured. After not having a player go to the Pro Bowl last year, having two go this year is better than none right?

Pro Bowl teams will be picked on January 21-22, and the game will be played on the 26th.
