Mike Bartrum is not a Pro Bowl tight end but he sure can flick those wrists to get a nice spiral on the ball under his legs. His skills as a long snapper have earned him a trip to be the third member of the Eagles going to the Pro Bowl. Trotter was the only player voted in and Dawkins is a replacement.
Bartrum always seemed like a good guy and his sentiments on his trip to Hawaii seem to show it:
"I feel honored to be representing my team at the Pro Bowl," Bartrum
said in a statement released by the team. "It will be a very special
experience for me and my family. Honors like this don't come along very often, and I plan to make the most of it."
