The Pro Bowl drought for the Seattle Seahawks is over.
For the first time since 2008, a Seattle player will travel to Hawaii to play in the annual NFL all-star game.
With the Pro Bowl team announced this afternoon, Seattle second year pro safety Earl Thomas has been voted onto the team. Thomas was named as an alternate in his rookie season last year.
Thomas is second on the Seahawks in tackles with 92, has two interceptions on the year and anchors a secondary that ranks fourth in the NFC in total pass defense.
Thomas is the first Seattle safety voted to the Pro Bowl since Darryl Williams made the team in 1997.
The Seahawks also have five players who are alternates: cornerback Brandon Browner (first), safety Kam Chancellor (first), fullback Michael Robinson (first), running back Marshawn Lynch (second) and punter Jon Ryan (third).
