ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Lorenzo Alexander arrived in Washington in October 2006 as a 300-pound undrafted practice squad defensive lineman who had been cut by two teams during the previous month.

Six years, eight positions and plenty of ups and downs later, Alexander now is a co-captain of the resurgent Redskins, and was voted to the Pro Bowl as the NFC's special teams player.

In fact, Washington's other two Pro Bowl-bound players, rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III and offensive tackle Trent Williams, are co-captains. Fellow co-captain London Fletcher is an alternate at inside linebacker.
