Kick returner Josh Cribbs was named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster Sunday, replacing Baltimore’s Jacoby Jones. Players on teams that reach the Super Bowl do not play in the Pro Bowl, which will be played next Sunday in Hawaii.
This is Cribbs’ third Pro Bowl selection as he also went to Hawaii after the 2007 and 2009 seasons as the AFC’s kick returner. He finished fourth in the NFL this year in kickoff return average (27.4) and sixth in punt return average (12.0) and also added nine special teams tackles. Cribbs also became just the sixth player in league history to total 12,000 or more career kick and punt return yards.
