Saints LB Vilma added to NFC roster

Saints LB Jonathan Vilma has been selected to the NFC’s Pro Bowl squad, the Saints and NFL announced Tuesday. Vilma, who last week was chosen the Saints’ “Man of the Year” for his contributions on and off the field, has been selected to two previous Pro Bowls, in 2005 (Jets) and 2009 (Saints).

“It’s always an honor to be elected to the Pro Bowl,” Vilma said. “I thank the fans, the players of the NFL and the people around the league that thought highly enough of our efforts. There are a lot of guys not only on our team that are deserving of being in the Pro Bowl. I am grateful for the recognition and just want to express my gratitude.”
