The Arizona Cardinals now have a fourth Pro Bowl representative.

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, initially selected as an alternate, will replace Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas, whose team advanced to Super Bowl XLVIII with a 26-16 win over the New England Patriots earlier Sunday.

This will be Fitzgerald's eighth Pro Bowl selection, and seventh consecutive -- setting a new franchise record.

Fitzgerald joins linebacker John Abraham, special teamer Justin Bethel and cornerback Patrick Peterson for the Cardinals, who haven't had a Pro Bowl selection on offense, defense and special teams since 2008.

Fitzgerald caught 10 touchdowns this season, making him one of just nine players in NFL history with 10 touchdown catches in five different seasons.

The Pro Bowl will be played next Sunday at 5 p.m. at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
