2018 NFL Pro Bowl: Gerald McCoy is the only Buccaneer on the list

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one Pro Bowler this season: defensive tackle Gerald McCoy will be headed to the 2018 Pro Bowl, his sixth in eight seasons in the NFL. McCoy has five sacks, twelve tackles for loss and 22 quarterback hits this year.

No other Bucs made the Pro Bowl list. Mike Evans is having a disappointing year, at least in terms of production, while Lavonte David is having an outstanding season with five forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries, but is for some reason being overlooked. Cameron Brate and Kwon Alexander might have been candidates, too, but the Bucs are having a pretty terrible season overall, so it’s hard to be too upset about the lack of Pro Bowlers.

However, a few Bucs can still make the Pro Bowl if some other players withdraw or can’t make it due to the Super Bowl. Tight end Kwon Alexander (third alternate), tight end Cam Brate (third alternate) and linebacker Lavonte David (second alternate) were all named as alternates.
