It's the second career Pro Bowl nod for Lang, and his second in as many seasons. He was named to the Pro Bowl last season with the Green Bay Packers, but a hip injury kept him from playing in the game.

Lang, who signed with Detroit as a free agent last offseason, becomes the first Lions offensive lineman to be named to the Pro Bowl since center Kevin Glover during the 1997 season. He will be the first Lions guard to play in the Pro Bowl since John Gordy following the 1965 season.

Lang played in 13 games for the Lions in 2017, and allowed just one sack and one quarterback hit in those contests. He was graded as the eighth best right guard in the NFL this season by Pro Football Focus.

He joins cornerback Darius Slay as Lions representatives in this year's Pro Bowl, which will be played Jan. 28 at 3 p.m.
