Samuel, Dawkins Fly Into Pro Bowl

Eagles secondary will be well represented in Hawaii as Asante Samuel and Brian Dawkins have been selected to the Pro Bowl.

Samuel will be making his second trip to the Pro Bowl -- his first with the Birds after signing a big off-season contract.

The Eagles corner leads the team with four interceptions and is tied for tops in the NFL with 21 passes defensed, while adding 35 tackles.

Dawkins may just solidify his almost certain Hall of Fame credentials by being named to his seventh NFC Pro Bowl team.

The Eagles free safety and defensive team leader has racked up the stats in 2008 with 123 tackles, including nine for a loss, four forced fumbles, two sacks, one interception, one fumble recovery and 11 passes defensed.

B-Dawk is only the third Eagles to ever make seven Pro Bowls joining Hall of Famers Chuck Bednarik and Reggie White.
