A.J. Green will have company at the Pro Bowl this week.
The league announced Sunday night that quarterback Andy Dalton, defensive tackle Geno Atkins and tight end Jermaine Grehsam have been added to the AFC squad for next Sunday’s game, which will kick off from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu at 7 p.m.

The New England Patriots’ trip to the Super Bowl, took Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork, and Rob Gronkowski off the Pro Bowl roster. It also put Andy Dalton, Geno Atkins, and Jermaine Gresham in the game, joining their teammate A.J. Green. According to my extremely-detailed mathematical logorithms, that makes four Bengals in the Pro Bowl. Four! [...]
