The NFL announced the players selected to the 2022 Pro Bowl, and the Chicago Bears hold two places on the roster. Outside linebacker Robert Quinn and return specialist Jakeem Grant Sr. will represent the Bears in the 2022 Pro Bowl.
2022 Pro Bowl
The 2022 Pro Bowl takes place on February 6, 2022, at Allegiant Stadium. The home of the Las Vegas Raiders will host the Pro Bowl for the first time in the stadium’s short history.
It will also host Super Bowl LVIII in 2024. Allegiant Stadium is an indoor arena that holds over 65,000 people and has a remarkable modern feel to it.
Robert Quinn is having a fantastic 2021 campaign. In 12 games for the Bears this season, Quinn has 14 sacks and 41 total tackles.
Quinn is on pace to match and potentially break Richard Dent’s single-season sack record for the Bears. Dent recorded 17.5 sacks in the Bears’ 1984 season and almost did it again during the legendary 1985 season when he had 17. The NFL selected Dent to the Pro Bowl in both of those seasons.
Jakeem Grant Sr.
Jakeem Grant Sr. provided a spark for the Bears against the Green Bay Packers in Week 14 with his record-setting 97-yard punt return touchdown. The Dolphins traded Grant to the Bears in early October. In nine games for the Bears this year, Grant has 15 returns for 144 yards and the lone touchdown. He’s also taken 20 kickoffs for 487 yards, but no scores.
He’s an electric player that forces opposing special teams squads to keep a close eye on him at all times. Grant plays a role on offense as well. He’s caught nine passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns. Grant left the Bears’ Week 15 game against the Vikings with concussion symptoms.
