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. Source: FOX Sports Ohio
