For the first time since 2008, the Jaguars are without a representative in the Pro Bowl recognizing the best players from around the league. However, punter Bryan Anger was named a second alternate and fullback Greg Jones was named a third alternate.
Maurice Jones-Drew was selected for the game in each of the last three seasons and Montell Owens earned a spot for his play in the 2010 season before earning a spot in the game in the subsequent year as an alternate, replacing Patriots special teamer Matthew Slater. Cornerback Rashean Mathis earned the accolade for his play in the 2006 season.
None of those former Pro Bowlers, though, earned spots on the AFC roster that was revealed on Wednesday. That makes the 2012 season only the third in franchise history to be without a Pro Bowl representative.
The Jaguars will finish the 2012 season on Sunday with a Week 17 game against the Tennessee Titans.
