Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The teams for the 2013 Pro Bowl were announced Wednesday and only two players were selected from Florida's trifecta of teams.
Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake will start for the AFC, while Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy will start for the NFC in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 27.
Wake, who earned his second Pro Bowl trip in three seasons, has a career-high 15 sacks, fourth in the NFL
"It's really an honor, I couldn't do it obviously without the guys around me," Wake was quoted on the Dolphins' official web site.
"I think, when these individual honors come out, it shows what kind of guys you have around you. Everybody knows that, as a pass rusher, your best friends are the guys behind you. Your DBs (defensive backs) have these receivers covered. The big guys in the middle take two and you can get one and they kind of make your job a little easier. I think this truly is not just an individual honor, but it's kind of a testament to the way these guys play defense, everybody on Miami's side."
McCoy, in his third season, is the first Bucs defensive lineman voted into the Pro Bowl since Warren Sapp and Simeon Rice in 2003.
"It's been hard, but God has really blessed me," McCoy was quoted on the Buccaneers' official site. "He's allowed me to stay healthy this year and that's a big reason why I was able to play the way I was because I got to stay on the field. The biggest thing is that my peers think that much of me to vote me in. I'm at a loss for words, because this is a dream come true. When I got drafted, it was a dream, but this is unbelievable."
Three Buccaneers were named as alternates: wide receiver Vincent Jackson, running back Doug Martin and free safety Ronde Barber.
No Jaguars were named to the Pro Bowl roster, though rookie punter Bryan Anger is a second alternate and fullback Greg Jones is a third alternate. Only twice in Jaguars history have the Jaguars not had a player in the game (1995 and 2008).

Miami Dolphins management has made it very clear that a logo change -- along with new uniforms -- is in store this offseason.

Defensive end Cameron Wake was the only Dolphins player selected on the initial AFC Pro Bowl team, a team that's likely to change once players bow out because of injuries or their presence in the Super Bowl. For Wake, it marked a second Pro Bowl selection in the last three years.
In the STRANGE TALE, that is Chad Johnson and his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada, it appears that the two are living once again under the same roof.According to a Chad's tweet, he proclaimed to a Twitter follower that Lozada and himself were once again living under the same roof.As of now, Lozada is on vacation in the Bahamas, but (let's assume Chad is telling the truth) they should...
With an underwhelming offense that needs upgrades to become playoff-worthy, the Miami Dolphins this winter could be eager to reach a deal with a 1,000-yard rusher who can catch passes and score from anywhere on the field.
Or perhaps they'll deem Reggie Bush too expensive to keep.
Bush might play his final game for the Dolphins (7-8) on Sunday when they close their season at...
The Miami Dolphins are expected to unveil a new logo in the near future to use in the 2013 season, but a picture circulating around the Internet could be the first look that fans get of the team’s new… well, look.
In a photo tweeted out by Uni Watch’s Paul Lukas, a sleek dolphin — no longer wearing a helmet — is surrounded by an orange sun against a white background.

Over the past week,...

Reggie Bush is scheduled to be among the Dolphins' most prominent free agents next spring, but if the running back has his way, he'll be back in a Miami uniform in 2013. He made it very clear Wednesday when he had his weekly press briefing at the team's training facility.
A victory this weekend against the New England Patriots would be huge for the Miami Dolphins. It would give us a three game win streak and momentum going into the offseason. The Dolphins are...

Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman says he "hasn't played well enough to win" during the past two games, in which he racked up a combined eight interceptions.
After some self-evaluation, Freeman said he and the offense need to get back to basics and avoid trying to do too much.
"Point blank, we just have to run the offense," Freeman said. "That's what...
