TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The 49ers' appearance in the Super Bowl means Cardinals inside linebacker Daryl Washington is headed to the Pro Bowl. Washington, an alternate, will replace San Francisco's NaVorro Bowman in Hawaii, where the Pro Bowl will be played next Sunday. Washington, the first Cardinals linebacker to make the Pro Bowl since Seth Joyner in 1994, led Arizona with a career-high 140 tackles, 110 of them solo, to go along with nine sacks, 14 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, an interception, a fumble recovery and six passes defensed. His nine sacks were the most by any inside linebacker in the league. Washington will be one of two Cardinals player participating in the Pro Bowl, the other being cornerback Patrick Peterson. Washington is in his third NFL season, Peterson his second. Peterson also made the Pro Bowl last year as a punt returner.
