Alabama LB C.J. Mosley accepts invitation to Senior Bowl

In major enough news, the Reese’s Senior Bowl announced it was done on a Friday as opposed to Monday when normally released, C.J. Mosley has accepted his invitation to attend this year’s event.  By most accounts, he was the most valuable player on Alabama’s roster this season and perhaps the best pure linebacker in the country.  Along with Mosley, teammates wide receiver Kevin Norwood and punter Cody Mandell have accepted their invitations and were announced as well.

This brings the total number of accepted invitations to the event at 94 so far.  As long as everyone is able to attend and participate that is listed to this point, this year’s Senior Bowl is absolutely loaded with star power.  Mosley is just the latest in a star studded field.  The full list can be found here.

One of several All-Star games to end the season and give players a chance to show off their skills in front of teams, receive NFL coaching and meet with teams and the media, the Senior Bowl has become the premier event and the center of the NFL universe for front office personnel at the end of January.
