NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Record-setting quarterback Drew Brees and one
of his favorite targets, tight end Jimmy Graham, are among five
Saints players voted to the 2011-12 NFC Pro Bowl roster.
All five players are part of the Saints' league-leading offense,
and three are linemen - left tackle Jermon Bushrod, left guard Carl
Nicks and right guard Jahri Evans.
Brees has passed for 5,087 yards this season, an NFL record
which he set in Monday night's victory over Atlanta. That eclipsed
Dan Marino's previous mark of 5,084 which stood since 1984.
Graham, in only his second season, leads the Saints with 91
catches for 1,213 yards and 10 touchdowns. His touchdown total is a
Saints single-season record for a tight end.
