Linval Joseph has been one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL since signing with the Vikings two years ago, and he's getting his due with a Pro Bowl trip later this month.

Joseph was selected as an alternate for Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

According to the Vikings, Joseph finished the 2016 season with 100 total tackles, 4 sacks and 3 forced fumbles. Before the season started, Pro Football Focus said Joseph's raw power was one of the 10 most unstoppable forces in the NFL.

This year's Pro Bowl is Jan. 29 in Orlando, Florida.
