AFC North Well Represented In 2011 NFL Pro Bowl

While the Browns have just one representative headed to Hawaii for the 2011 Pro Bowl, the rest of the AFC North is well represented. A total of eight players from the division will be heading to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl, though the Cincinnati Bengals were shut out.

On the offensive side, only one fellow Northerner will be joining Joe Thomas. Rookie C Maurkice Pouncey will back up starting center Nick Mangold of the the Jets. As expected, it is on the defensive side where the AFC North makes its mark.

The Baltimore Ravens have four defenders on the team – LBs Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs, DT Haloti Ngata and S Ed Reed. Each have been mainstays on the AFC squad for years.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were well represented as well. SS Troy Polamalu and his hair will be heading to Hawaii along with teammate LB James Harrison.

FInally, K Billy Cundiff of the Ravens will be heading to Hawaii to handle the kicking duties. Cundiff was a mid-season pickup for the Ravens in 2009 and has been a solid addition.
