St. Brown, who just completed his second season with the Detroit Lions, caught 106 passes for 1,161 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 2023. St. Brown quickly established himself as the favorite target of quarterback Jared Goff and as one of the top slot receivers in the NFL.
His 196 receptions over his first two seasons are tied with Justin Jefferson (2020-21) and Michael Thomas (2016-17) for the most in NFL history in a player’s first two seasons in the NFL.
The 2023 Pro Bowl begins on Thursday at 4 p.m. PT (ESPN). For the first time, the event will consist of skills competitions and non-contact flag football games, rather than an actual tackle-to-the-ground game like in the past. The games will take place on Sunday, Feb. 5 at 12 p.m. PT.
