FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Another member of the Falcons has been named to the 2018 Pro Bowl roster, this time it's safety Keanu Neal. Last week it was linebacker Deion Jones' name that was called.
Neal is replacing Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, who will be getting ready to play in Super Bowl LII. In his second season, Neal finished the season as the Falcons' second leading tackler with 113 on the year. The hard-hitting safety also led the way forcing three fumbles, recovering two of them.
Neal set a new NFL record for most forced fumbles by a defensive back in his first two seasons with eight. The Falcons drafted Neal in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of the University of Florida.
The Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 28 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
