Knox Goes Bowling
It's been annouced that Johnny Knox will be in South Florida this week to particpate in the Pro Bowl. Johnny Knox will officially replace Percy Harvin as the return specialist for the game. Even though he is listed as kick return specialist, look for Knox to get a lot of playing time at wide receiver as well. Traditionally the stars don't want to play very long and will let the younger guys play a greater number of snaps. This used to happend to Bears special teamer Brendon Ayanbadejo who would rarely play a snap at linebacker for the Bears, but would play linebacker for 40 or 50 plays in the pro bowl because no one else wanted to play.
Congrats to Johnny, who will be the first Bears rookie since Hester to make the Pro Bowl, hopefully he can win the MVP trophy for a nice little bonus.
