Diggs has four interceptions (tied for 4th in the NFL) and nine passes defended in pass coverage this season to go along with 52 total tackles (33 solo). 

Seattle acquired Diggs along with a seventh-rounder during the 2019 season in exchange for a 2020 NFL Draft fifth-round pick. He immediately made an impact becoming one of Seattle's best defensive players and being named a Pro Bowl alternate. 

This season, Diggs improved enough to make the initial cut. However, the Pro Bowl will not be played this season due to COVID-19, with it being replaced by a week-long virtual event. 

Pro Bowl teams are chosen by a combination of fan voting, media and coaches. The NFL's "All-Star" game has been canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s the first time the Pro Bowl has been canceled since 1949. 

Still, Diggs can now say he is a Pro Bowler.
