Another Steelers player was offered a spot in the Pro Bowl and this time he did not turn it down. Linebacker LaMarr Woodley becomes the third on his team to make the AFC roster for the Jan. 31 game in Miami.
Woodley, who led the Steelers with 13.5 sacks, replaces Houston linebacker Brian Cushing, who withdrew because of injury. This is Woodley's first trip to the Pro Bowl, after his third NFL season, second as a starter. He joins fellow Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison and nose tackle Casey Hampton on the AFC team.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger declined a spot in the Pro Bowl this week after New England quarterback Tom Brady withdrew.
