Justin Hardee reaching out for Pro Bowl votes, upset about current standings




 

Special teams are often an overlooked aspect of football games. But the units, and the key players on those units, can be very helpful in building football teams and winning football games.

For the New York Jets, they have a player like in Justin Hardee, who is the special teams captain for the Jets. Hardee is a leader both on and off the field. He leads the Jets with 11 special teams tackles. No other Jets player has more than four on special teams. Hardee also has a forced fumble to his credit this season, which came back in Week 4 against the Steelers.

His play could be deemed worthy for the new Pro Bowl Games. But at Hardee tweeted himself, perhaps he just isn't getting enough exposure. Hardee noticed he wasn't even in the top ten among specialists and he was none too happy about it.

In the voting standings revealed earlier this week by the NFL, the leading vote-getters from each conference among special-teamers were Baltimore's Justice Hill (17,043 votes) for the AFC and Minnesota's Kris Boyd (16,568) for the NFC.

To vote for Hardee and others, visit NFL.com/pro-bowl-games/vote or vote on Twitter. To cast a Twitter vote, fans should tweet the first and last name of the player, the player's official Twitter handle, or a hashtag including the player's first and last name. All three of these methods must include the hashtag #ProBowlVote. Fan voting ends December 15.

The new Pro Bowl Games will take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV on Sunday, February 5, 2023.
