JACKSONVILLE – Another Jaguars player is heading to the Pro Bowl.
Evan Engram, the Jaguars' veteran tight end who approached multiple team and league records in 2023, on January 30 was named to the 2024 Pro Bowl Games as an alternate. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce withdrew from the game because the Chiefs will play in the Super Bowl.
Engram, a seven-year veteran who joined the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent in the 2022 offseason, caught 114 passes for 963 yards and four touchdowns in 2023. The 114 receptions were the second-most by a tight end in NFL history and the second-most receptions by any player in Jaguars history.
Engram's 963 yards were the third-most by a tight end in 2023, with George Kittle of the San Francisco 49ers catching 65 passes for 1,020 yards and Kelce catching 93 passes for 984 yards.
Engram became the third Jaguars player named to the '24 Pro Bowl along with outside linebacker Josh Allen and long snapper Ross Matiscik.
Engram previously was named to the Pro Bowl in 2020 while with the New York Giants.
The Pro Bowl Games will be held February 1-February 4 in Orlando, with skills competitions beginning February 1 at Nicholson Fieldhouse and a flag football game scheduled for February 4 at Camping World Stadium. This is the second year the games have been held in this format.
Engram joins LS Ross Matiscik and OLB Josh Allen, who were voted into the 2024 Pro Bowl Games earlier this month.
