The rosters for the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl have been announced which gives us a chance to bust out another sports report. One player on that list is of great interest to many TCU Horned Frog fans and no, his name is not Tim Tebow.
Former TCU football and Cincinnati Bengals QB ANDY DALTON has been named as the first alternate for the AFC. This is actually really good news and gives Dalton a really good chance to get some playing time at the game.
Dalton, named the AFC’s first QB alternate, was a second-round selection of the Bengals in the 2011 NFL Draft and started all 16 games for the Bengals, leading them to a current record of 9-6 and still in the hunt for the playoffs.
On the season, Dalton has 3,199 passing yards with 20 touchdowns and just 13 interceptions. Andy Dalton, Cam Newton and Peyton Manning are the only rookie QBs in NFL history to throw for at least 3,000 yards and 20 TDs. And this is why Dalton deserves to be in the pro bowl.
