Detroit Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown hot on 2024 Pro Bowl snub

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown didn’t make the initial 2024 Pro Bowl roster, and he clearly wasn’t happy about it.

“I was heated,” St. Brown told reporters Thursday.

The Lions receiver made the Pro Bowl last year but was a late addition. He’s potentially in line to be a late addition this year, as he finished as the top option in the NFC this year.

The four NFC receivers who made the Pro Bowl list before St. Brown were CeeDee Lamb of the Cowboys, AJ Brown of the Eagles, Mike Evans of the Buccaneers and Puka Nakua of the Rams. St. Brown credited the four players but apparently believed he was in the group going to Orlando the week before the Super Bowl.

St. Brown certainly has a case. Here’s a look at his statistical production compared to the other four (ranked by yards gained):

Lamb: 122 catches, 1,651 yards, 10 TD
Brown: 105 catches, 1,447 yards, 7 TDs
Nacua: 101 catches, 1,445 yards, 5 TDs
St. Brown: 112 catches, 1,371 yards, 9 TDs
Evans: 76 catches, 1,233 yards, 13 TDs

St. Brown also has a higher PFF score (90.0) than Nacua (88.2) and Evans (83.4), and he’s right there with Brown (90.2) and Lamb (90.7).

It should come as no surprise that St. Brown plans to use this insult as fuel as the team prepares to make the playoffs.

“I feel like I didn’t perform well enough during the season, so I have to work harder,” St. Brown said.

While St. Brown did not make the Pro Bowl, five of his teammates did: tight end Sam LaPorta, center Frank Ragno, right tackle Penny Sewell, edge defender Aidan Hutchinson, and special teamer Jalen Reeves-Maybin.
