It’s been tremendous turnaround in Jacksonville, as the Jaguars have already clinched a 10 win season and a playoff berth and as a by product, Pro Bowl accolades began to come in on Tuesday night.

The NFL Network revealed the AFC and the NFC rosters in a prime time special and it was filled out  with the Jags, and a single Dolphin and Buccaneer.

Campbell, arguably the top free agent acquisition in the NFL last off season, has led a menacing Jaguars defense. That defense has been #1 almost all season in sacks, points allowed and yards allowed bolstering the Jaguars to their season. It is his third Pro Bowl selection. It is also the most Jacksonville players in the Pro Bowl since 1999.

Teammates DT Malik Jackson, and CB’s A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey all made the Pro Bowl for the first time in their careers.

The Dolphins lone selection was safety Reshad Jones and it was more noteworthy that star DT’s Ndamukong Suh, and Cameron Wake and WR Jarvis Landry did not make the first team in the AFC.

For the Buccaneers, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy has been named to his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl during a season that has ended in disappointment for the team overall and in injury for him. McCoy suffered a biceps injury in Detroit loss in week 14. It is uncertain at this point if he will have surgery and be available to play in the game in Orlando in late January.
