Fletcher, Orakpo headed to Hawaii
By Dan Graziano
Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher's making up for lost time as he nears the end of his career. He's been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster for the second consecutive season after being overlooked for so many years. Fletcher and outside linebacker Brian Orakpo will both head to Hawaii because of an injury to Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher and the fact that Clay Matthews is preparing for the Super Bowl.
Orakpo only had 8.5 sacks, but he did draw several holding penalties, including one that sealed the season-opener against the Dallas Cowboys. Fletcher and Orakpo join Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall on the roster.
