New Orleans Saints right guard Larry Warford has been added to the NFC's Pro Bowl roster, making it 10 players from the Saints who will be participating in the NFL's annual all-star game in Orlando, Fla., on Sunday, Jan. 26.
Warford, 6 feet 3, 317 pounds, is a seven-year NFL veteran who was originally selected in the third round (65th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Lions out of Kentucky. In his seven seasons with New Orleans and Detroit, he has opened all 101 regular season games and six postseason contests at right guard. In 2019, Warford opened 15 regular season contests and the postseason game, blocking for a team tied for third in the NFL in points per game and giving up only 25 sacks, tied for the league's third-lowest total. Warford is only the second Saint to be named to the league's all-star game in each of his first three seasons with the club and only the second guard to be named three times.
Warford will replace Dallas Cowboys guard Zack Martin, who is unable to participate due to injury.
Warford is the third Saints player added as a replacement as tight end Jared Cook and left guard Andrus Peat were added last week. The will join tackle Terron Armstead, quarterback Drew Brees, returner Deonte Harris, defensive end Cameron Jordan, cornerback Marshon Lattimore, kicker Wil Lutz and wide receiver Michael Thomas, who were original selections.
The 10 players is a franchise record for the Saints.
