The rosters were revealed for the 2022 Pro Bowl and there are some Minnesota Vikings players who could feel a little robbed that they weren’t included.

The NFL announced the roster for the 2022 NFL Pro Bowl on Wednesday and the lack of players from the Minnesota Vikings is quite obvious. Only three players from the purple and gold made the team, leaving others out in the cold.

Having wide receiver Justin Jefferson on the team was a no-brainer. Joining the second-year sensation is their star running back Dalvin Cook and veteran safety Harrison Smith. Still, that doesn’t seem like enough.

During a season where the Vikings have struggled their way to a 7-7 record through the first 15 weeks, there are some performances that have been overlooked or just plain ignored this year.

Let’s take a look at five players who have played well enough to be named to the Pro Bowl this year as well as why their lack of inclusion should be considered a robbery of monumental standards.
