Eight Patriots to Miss the Pro Bowl

By virtue of advancing to Super Bowl XLVI, the eight New England Patriots selected for the Pro Bowl will have to pass on playing in the NFL’s all-star game. I don’t think any of them are complaining. Here are the replacements on the AFC Pro Bowl squad for the Patriots representatives:

  • QB Tom Brady – Bengals QB Andy Dalton
  • WR Wes Welker – Chargers WR Vincent Jackson
  • TE Rob Gronkowski – Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham
  • Guards Brian Waters and Logan Mankins – Jets G Brandon Moore and Ravens G Ben Grubbs
  • DE Andre Carter – Texans DE Antonio Smith
  • DT Vince Wilfork – Bengals DT Geno Atkins
  • Special-teamer Matthew Slater – Jaguars ST Montell Owens
