Justin Herbert’s professional career isn’t even two years old and he’s already one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks.

The Los Angeles Chargers announced Herbert was named as one of three quarterbacks that will represent the AFC in the 2022 Pro Bowl. It’s his first Pro Bowl of his young career.

Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson are the other two signal-callers for the AFC. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady, and Arizona’s Kyler Murray will represent the NFL.

As for Herbert, he is quickly becoming one of the most prolific quarterbacks in Chargers history. He has already set the NFL record for passing yards through his first two seasons in the league with 8,394 yards and 63 touchdowns. For 2021, Herbert has amassed 4,058 yards (290 ypg) with 32 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions.

Herbert becomes the seventh Charger quarterback to be a Pro Bowler and the second Duck to accomplish the feat with that franchise with Dan Fouts being the first. Fouts was selected to the Pro Bowl six times and a Hall of Famer.

Former Oregon Duck defensive end DeForest Buckner was also named to the 2022 Pro Bowl as he will represent the Indianapolis Colts. Buckner has 55 tackles and 6.5 sacks for the 8-6 Colts. This will be Buckner’s second trip to the Pro Bowl.
