Another season, another Pro Bowl for Larry Fitzgerald.

The Arizona Cardinals' wide receiver is headed to his sixth straight Pro Bowl and seventh overall. Fitzgerald was selected as an alternate initially and will now replace Brandon Marshall of the Chicago Bears on the NFC squad. He joins teammates Patrick Peterson and Daryl Washington on the NFC team. The Pro Bowl will be played in Honolulu on Sunday.

The seven Pro Bowl appearances is the most in franchise history by a Cardinals offensive player. Due to poor quarterback player, Fitzgerald actually had one of the worst seasons of his stellar career but still managed to lead the Red Birds in receptions (71) and yards (798) while adding four touchdowns.

Safety Larry Wilson has the most Pro Bowl appearances in franchise history with eight. Cornerback Roger Wehrli also appeared in seven Pro Bowls. Both Wilson and Wehrli are both in the Hall of Fame.

Will Fitzgerald be headed to Canton some day? If he stays healthy, you can count on it.
