Last night, the NFL revealed the 2024 Pro Bowl Games roster, and two Jaguars made the list: outside linebacker Josh Allen and long snapper Ross Matiscik.

This morning, the team revealed seven players who will be Pro Bowl alternates.

  • Return specialist Jamal Agnew
  • Punter Logan Cooke
  • Tight end Evan Engram
  • Running back Travis Etienne
  • Quarterback Trevor Lawrence
  • Inside linebacker Foye Oluokun
  • Cornerback Darious Williams

It’s the second career Pro Bowl nod for Agnew and Lawrence, who represented Jacksonville at last year’s Games, as well as Engram. This is the first such recognition for Cooke, Etienne, Oluokun, and Williams.

Despite playing in 11 games this season due to various injuries, Agnew ranks fifth in total kickoff return yards (391) and yards per kick return (26.1) among players with 10-plus returns. He’s also 19th among all players in all-purpose yards (758).

Cooke ranks third in percentage of punts downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard line (48.3%) and fifth in net yards per punt (43.6%).

Engram recently became the eighth tight end in NFL history to surpass 100 receptions in a season. His 844 yards through 16 games is both a career- and franchise-high.

Etienne recently became the sixth running back in Jaguars history to reach 2,000 career rushing yards. He ranks third in touches (304) and eighth in yards from scrimmage (1,397) among all players this season. The third-year pro also ranks eighth in yards (951) and touchdowns (11) on the ground, and he is pacing the league in broken tackles (30).

Lawrence’s traditional statistics are underwhelming, though anyone who’s watched him play knows those metrics don’t paint a full picture. Lawrence still ranks second in PFF’s Big Time Throws (34) and fourth in rate of such throws (61.%) among 44 qualifying passers this year.

Oluokun is on the verge of leading the league in combined tackles for a third consecutive season, which would make him just the second player to ever do so. He’s tied for 13th among all defenders in PFF’s Stops against the run metric after finishing tied for second last year.

Williams began the season as the most statistically productive cornerback in football, and he remains in second place for pass deflections (19). He also ranks sixth in PFF coverage grade (83.6) and 13th in passer rating allowed when targeted (68.7) among 133 qualifying corners.

Christian Kirk and Andre Cisco may have had Pro Bowl cases with healthier seasons. Devin Lloyd has had a quietly impressive sophomore season, albeit not good enough to earn a Pro Bowl nod over more established players. It doesn’t help that the NFL selects just two inside linebackers from each conference.

Press Taylor said on Thursday, “It’s unfortunate we didn’t have more Pro Bowl nominees than we had. We had tons of players that are capable of it.”

The 2024 NFL Pro Bowl Games will be held in Orlando, Fla. from February 1-4.
