Huge Recognition For Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs from NFL Players
The NFL will be having their Pro Bowl festivities this weekend, which kicks off today from Las Vegas.
Just to clarify, there is no Pro Bowl game anymore, that was done away with in 2022. Instead, there will be fun games and activities which will take place, including a flag football game on Thursday.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen was voted to the Pro Bowl for the AFC, but Allen backed out earlier this week with an injury. Instead, Allen will be playing golf at the Pebble Beach Pro Am, which is what he did last year as well.
Stefon Diggs and Matt Milano will be at the Pro Bowl, as will Mitch Morse and Dion Dawkins.
There were more accolades for Bills players on Thursday, as the NFLPA announced the top five players at every position. These were voted on by peers in the NFL. For example, the top quarterbacks were voted on by bellow quarterbacks and the defensive players they line up against.
Josh Allen was named the second best quarterback in the NFL and Stefon Diggs the third best wide receiver in the NFL.
Matt Milano, Mitch Morse, Jordan Poyer and Tyler Bass all made the top five at their positions; in Bass' case, top three for kickers in the entire NFL.
This is fascinating and worthy because the NFLPA polls players and players at positions they feel matter for deciding who is the best. It's well thought out.
It says a lot about Diggs that he beat out Tyreek Hill and A.J. Brown. Allen beat out Joe Burrow.
