TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals cornerback Antonio Cromartie has been selected to the Pro Bowl, replacing Richard Sherman of the Super Bowl-bound Seattle Seahawks.

It is the third straight selection for Cromartie, and fourth of his career. He had been selected this year as an alternate, but will now join Cardinals teammates Calais Campbell, Patrick Peterson and Justin Bethel in the game at University of Phoenix Stadium — Arizona’s home field — in the NFL’s all-star game.

The Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 25, a week before the Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona.

Cromartie, in his first season with Arizona, had three interceptions for the Cardinals. He has also made the Pro Bowl while a member of the New York Jets and San Diego Chargers.
