JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence was named to the 2023 Pro Bowl Games, replacing Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, the NFL announced Tuesday.

Lawrence will join WR Jamal Agnew at the Pro Bowl Games and is the 32nd Pro Bowler in franchise history.

He is the third quarterback in team history to earn Pro Bowl honors, joining QBs Mark Brunell (1996, 1997, 1999) and David Garrard (2009).

In the 2022 regular season, Lawrence completed 387 of 584 passes for 4,113 yards and 25 TDs. His 387 completions were the most in a single season in franchise history and his five rushing TDs were tied with Garrard for the most in single-season franchise history.

Lawrence joined Bengals QB Joe Burrow and Bills QB Josh Allen as the only players in the NFL with 25-plus passing TDs and at least five rushing TDs. Against the Titans in Week 14, Lawrence set a career high with 368 yards passing and was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance.

The second-year quarterback totaled four 300-yard passing games and orchestrated three comebacks of 17-plus points, including a comeback from behind 27-0 in the postseason against the Chargers. In two postseason contests, Lawrence completed 52 of 86 passes for 505 yards and five TDs. He threw for four TDs against the Chargers, becoming the youngest player in NFL history to throw for four or more touchdowns in a playoff game.

The 2023 Pro Bowl games will take place in Las Vegas beginning on Thursday, Feb. 2 with the Pro Bowl players competing in skills challenges. The Pro Bowl Games competition culminates with a seven versus seven action-packed flag football game at Allegiant Stadium.
