Vikings LB E.J. Henderson was added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster on Thursday, providing an incredible end to a great comeback season.

Henderson started all 16 games for Minnesota this season and recorded 139 tackles in 2010, a year after suffering a gruesome leg injury that forced him to miss the final the final four regular-season games and both playoff games last season. It is the 30-year-old's first Pro Bowl appearance.

The way we see it

Although the Vikings' record was disappointing in 2010, it is great to see Henderson rewarded for his terrific comeback campaign. He is a talented linebacker who might be making return trips to Hawaii in the coming seasons.
