Harbaugh says Johnson was a Pro Bowl snub

Ravens coach John Harbaugh considers outside linebacker Jarret Johnson a Pro Bowl snub for the past two seasons.

Many acknowledge the 2009 season was a breakout one for Johnson. For the NFL's No. 3 defense, he was the only player to finish in the top three in tackles (70), sacks (six) and interceptions (two). And Johnson accomplished all of this despite having a shoulder injury for the final three months of the season.

"Here's a guy that always plays well, always practices well, plays through any injury," Harbaugh said. "And you guys see him out there -- you can tell he's in pain lots of times, and he's flying around. There's not a better man in this league than Jarret Johnson, and he's a good football player."

Harbaugh added, "To see him get recognized the way he has been is encouraging, and I would think pretty soon he's going to be in the Pro Bowl. I think he had a Pro Bowl year this year, and I also think he had a Pro Bowl year last year."
