Kalil is headed to Hawaii after all. Kalil was added to the NFC's Pro Bowl roster Friday to replace Washington Redskins tackle Trent Williams, who was hurt in a brawl at a Honolulu nightclub.|||||||
Kalil was the fourth overall draft pick last April and immediately established himself as a top player at one of the game's most important positions. He helped pave the way for Adrian Peterson to rush for 2,000 yards and usually faced the opponent's top pass rusher as the protector for Christian Ponder's blind side. He is the fourth Vikings rookie to make the Pro Bowl since 2007.
The Minnesota Vikings have signed Kalil, their top draft pick and the last player from their 2012 draft class to reach a contract.|||||||
Terms weren't disclosed Thursday, one day before the team opens training camp in Mankato. Kalil was the fourth choice overall from Southern California.
