Pro Bowl 2018: Alex Smith named Philip Rivers replacement

One of the single biggest snubs from this year's original Pro Bowl announcement has been rectified with the news that Alex Smith has been named to the 2018 all-star exhibition in place of L.A. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

This marks the second straight year Smith has made the Pro Bowl, which takes place January 28 in Orlando.

Smith's passer rating was higher than both Rivers' (96.0) and Roethlisberger's (93.4), and Smith officially gets the nod now that Rivers - who threw for more yards (4,515) and touchdowns (28) than Smith despite twice losing to him head-to-head - won't be playing in the game. He was originally named as an alternate when selections were made in December of 2017. He joins receiver Tyreek Hill, running back Kareem Hunt and tight end Travis Kelce on the Pro Bowl. The Chiefs announced that their quarterback Alex Smith has been added to the roster. All three Pro Bowl noms have come in his five season tenure with the Chiefs, including his first season in 2013.
