New York City – The New York Jets announced today that cornerback Ty Law has been selected to represent the New York Jets in the Pro Bowl, the NFLâ€™s annual all-star game. The announcement was made by Jetsâ€™ Executive Vice President/General Manager Terry Bradway.
Law will be making his fifth career appearance in the Pro Bowl, having also represented the AFC as a New England Patriot following the 1998, 2001, 2002 and 2003 seasons. Law is tied for fifth in the league with six interceptions and has added 61 tackles (54 solo) and nine passes defended.
Lawâ€™s nomination marks the first time the Jets have sent a defensive back to the Pro Bowl since Aaron Glenn was selected in 1998. Law now has 42 career interceptions and earlier this year became only the 72nd player in the NFL since 1969 to record 40 or more interceptions in regular season play.
The AFC and NFC All-Star squads are made up of the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third towards determining the 43-man rosters that represent the American Football Conference and National Football Conference in the Pro Bowl. The Pro Bowl will be played in Hawaii on Sunday, Feb. 12, and televised by ESPN.
