Content: Russell Okung was named to the 2018 Pro Bowl as a left tackle. But, Authentic Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey , he’s hoping he gets to play at another position in Sunday’s game. “I’m trying to get a chance to go out there and play corner,” Okung said following Thursday’s practice. 310 pounds, Authentic Kareem Hunt Jersey , Okung is six inches taller and weighs over 100 pounds more than Chargers Pro Bowl cornerback Casey Hayward. But hey,At 6-5, Authentic Tyreek Hill Jersey , that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve a shot! ‘Hey man, womens Justin Houston Jersey , can I get a play or so (in)?’ And he said, womens Marcus Peters Jersey , ‘Well,“I talked to Casey a little bit and said, only if it’s cover two.’ So if I get some help over the top, they may let me get in.” So, has Hayward given Okung any tips? “He’s being pretty stingy. He wants me to go out there and look bad. I think he’s afraid of his job with me.” but,Whether or not Okung gets in at corner remains to be seen, womens Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey , womens Kareem Hunt Jersey , he’s happy and fortunate to have been named to the game after earning his first honor five seasons ago. “I feel so fortunate and so blessed that I get another opportunity to come out here and compete against some of the best guys in the world. I haven’t been (here) in years, Authentic Alex Smith Jersey , but I get a chance this year to come and be a (part of a) great showing for the Chargers and the organization (to) come out here and compete this Sunday.” Okung brought a veteran presence to the offensive line in 2017. He helped bolster a unit that allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL (18). His two sacks allowed (according to STATS LLC) equaled the best single-season effort of his career in which he played 10 or more games.

One of the crazy things about the Pro Bowl is bringing competitors from the same conference onto one team. Although he was on the NFC side the last time he played in the game, Authentic Travis Kelce Jersey ,As Okung alluded, womens Travis Kelce Jersey , playing alongside his new AFC teammates is exciting for Okung due to their competitive spirit. they’re amazing competitors (and) they really love the game like me, too. So, Authentic Spencer Ware Jersey ,“It’s crazy how I’m playing next to Kelechi Osemele on the edge against Von Miller. It’s crazy the guys you compete against week in and week out (and now) being on the same team as them. It’s insane. But these guys, it’s a good feeling.”
