JAGUARS WIDE RECEIVER ALLEN ROBINSON NAMED TO 2016 PRO BOWL

 

The National Football League announced today that Jaguars second-year wide receiver Allen Robinson has been named to the 2016 Pro Bowl. He will be replacing Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who is unable to participate due to injury.

 

“It’s definitely an honor, but no individual success comes without the help of amazing teammates and coaches,” said Robinson. “I’m looking forward to the experience in Hawaii and the opportunity to be around so many of the great talents of our league.”

 

Robinson broke the team’s single season receiving touchdowns record (14) and at 22 years old, became the youngest player in NFL history to register 1,400-plus yards and 14-plus receiving touchdowns in a single season. Robinson finished the season with 80 receptions for 1,400 yards (17.5 receiving average) and 14 receiving touchdowns.

 

Robinson is the third wide receiver in franchise history to be named to the Pro Bowl, joining Keenan McCardelland Jimmy Smith. Robinson is the first Jaguars offensive player to be named to the Pro Bowl since Maurice Jones-Drew in 2011 and the first Jaguars wide receiver to be named to the Pro Bowl since Smith in 2001.
