Mike Bartrum Gets Free Vacation

Jan 30, 2006, 1:54 PM EDT

Mike Bartrum is not a Pro Bowl tight end but he sure can flick those wrists to get a nice spiral on the ball under his legs.  His skills as a long snapper have earned him a trip to be the third member of the Eagles going to the Pro Bowl.  Trotter was the only player voted in and Dawkins is a replacement.

Bartrum always seemed like a good guy and his sentiments on his trip to Hawaii seem to show it:

"I feel honored to be representing my team at the Pro Bowl," Bartrum
said in a statement released by the team. "It will be a very special
experience for me and my family.  Honors like this don’t come along very often, and I plan to make the most of it."
