Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher is going to Hawaii, after all. He will make his third straight appearance in the Pro Bowl after being added on Monday to the NFC’s roster for the NFL’s annual all-star game.

“Aloha! Officially added to the pro bowl roster today!” Fletcher wrote on his Twitter account.

Fletcher, who led the NFL with 166 tackles this season, was left off the Pro Bowl roster last month. San Francisco’s Patrick Willis and Chicago’s Brian Urlacher were the two inside linebackers nominated from the NFC.

In addition to Fletcher’s league-leading tackles total this season, he had 1.5 sacks, two interceptions and three forced fumbles. By comparison, Urlacher, who was named to his eighth Pro Bowl, had 102 tackles, no sacks, three interceptions and no forced fumbles.

Urlacher, however, sprained the MCL in his left knee in Chicago’s season finale against Minnesota, opening a spot for Fletcher. The veteran went to each of the last two Pro Bowls as an alternate.

The Pro Bowl will be played Jan. 29 in Honolulu.
