Two More Falcons Head to Pro Bowl

Posted Jan 21, 2013

Safeties Thomas DeCoud and William Moore have been added the NFC's Pro Bowl roster today and will play in the annual NFL all-star game Sunday.

The National Football League today announced that safety Thomas DeCoud and safety William Moore have been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster.

DeCoud will replace San Francisco’s S Dashon Goldson. He earned his first Pro Bowl selection after his breakout performance in 2012, posting 89 total tackles (69 solo) with nine passes defensed and a team-leading six interceptions. DeCoud’s six interceptions were a career-high and ranked second in the League among safeties this season.

Moore will replace San Francisco’s S Donte Whitner. He earned his first Pro Bowl selection after notching 105 total tackles (74 solo) with eight passes defensed, four interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one sack. The fourth year strong safety out of Missouri earned NFC Player of the Week honors after he intercepted Saints QB Drew Brees twice in Atlanta’s 23-13 win over New Orleans in Week 13.

The duo of DeCoud and Moore combined for 11 takeaways, including 10 INTs & one fumble recovery, which resulted in 33 points during the 2012 season.
