Dalton, Atkins and Gresham All Added to the AFC Pro Bowl Roster

The Bengals will be sending three players to Hawaii to join the rest of the AFC in the Pro Bowl.

QB Andy Dalton, DT Geno Atkins and TE Jermaine Gresham have been added to the roster to play in Sunday nights game. Dalton and Atkins were both first alternates in last month’s voting, and Gresham was a third alternate. All three will replace players who were removed from the squad when the Patriots won the AFC Championship and qualified for Super Bowl XLVI.

Dalton will replace New England QB Tom Brady, Atkins will take the spot of Patriots DT Vince Wilfork, and Gresham will replace Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski. Two alternates voted ahead of Gresham are not available for the game, the league announced. The Bengals now have four players headed for the Pro Bowl, as WR A.J. Green was voted to the AFC team last month.
