Per Tim Twentyman at the official team site, wide receiver Kenny Golladay will take the place of injured Chris Godwin from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2020 Pro Bowl. After leading the league in touchdowns with 11 receiving scores and posting his second straight 1,000-yard season, the former third-round pick was widely considered a snub in spite of being named a third alternate.

As noted by our fearless leader Jeremy Reisman, Golladay was a big play threat with a monstrous average per catch. At the end of the season, his 18.3 yards per reception was third in the league among qualifiers behind just Mike Williams and A.J. Brown. Considering he was forced to play with three different quarterbacks during the 2019 season, 65 catches for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns was impressive production.

The team is of course extremely proud, and putting out some great tweets regarding this news:

Congratulations to freshly minted Pro Bowler Kenny Golladay, who joins Big Play Slay in representing the Lions in Orlando.
