Pro-Bowler Landry recognizes fellow fill-in Albert

Following the announcement that Antonio Brown would not be participating in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 31 because of injury, sophomore wideout Jarvis Landry packed his bags for Hawaii.

The Dolphins receiver, who was fourth in the league in receptions and sixth in targets, will be heading out west in 10 days to represent Miami alongside offensive lineman Branden Albert, who's replacing Washington's Trent Williams.

For as excited as the young wideout is about the selection, he was sure to thank Albert for his leadership along the way.

"He did things for young guys like me, motivation wise, to keep me in it and to keep guys in it," Landry said via "I think that was one of the things that I could say Branden Albert as a leader, as a player, as a man really changed my life, elevated my game. 

"No other man more deserving of it than him."
