Saints QB Drew Brees is the injury replacement for Washington QB Robert Griffin III on the 2013 NFC Pro Bowl roster.
Rookie Griffin will have surgery to major knee surgery this offseason, and the Pro Bowl may be the least important game he misses in 2013.
Brees was the top alternate quarterback for the NFC squad, behind Aaron Rodgers of the Packers and Matt Ryan of the Falcons. This makes five straight Pro Bowl seasons for Brees, his sixth as a Saint. In franchise history, that ties him with Morten Andersen and Rickey Jackson, and Brees remains one behind Willie Roaf, the franchise leader with seven.
