2011 Pro Bowl Rosters: Matt Cassel In For Tom Brady; Ed Reed And Antonio Gates Out

Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel has taken over for New England Patriots QB Tom Brady before, and now he’ll get to do it one more time. Due to Brady’s knee injury there’s a vacancy on the AFC’s roster, which Cassel will step up to fill. The Chiefs now have three players at offensive skill positions in the game, with RB Jamaal Charles and WR Dwayne Bowe also repping KC.

Elsewhere around the AFC, Tennessee Titans safety Michael Griffin will replace Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed and Oakland Raiders TE Zach Miller is in for San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates. Griffin joins DE Jason Babin, while Miller becomes the first Raider in the 2011 Pro Bowl. Two Raiders made the cut on defense.

Cassel posted career highs in touchdowns and interception avoidance, completing over 58 percent of his passes while supplementing Kansas City’s stout running game. He’s heading into his third season as the Chiefs starter since coming over from the Pats.
