Pro Bowl 2013: Andrew Whitworth to replace Ryan Clady on AFC roster

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth is headed to the Pro Bowl as a replacement for Broncos tackle Ryan Clady.

Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth has been named to the Pro Bowl as a replacement for Denver Broncos tackle Ryan Clady. Clady will miss the game due to injury. This will be the first Pro Bowl for Whitworth.

Whitworth has been one of the top tackles in the NFL over the past three seasons, but was routinely snubbed when Pro Bowl teams were announced. After being left off the roster so many times, Whitworth had grown tired of the process. Prior to the announcement of the roster, he said, "It's a joke to me, I don't worry about that stuff every year ... It doesn't matter one way or the other to me."

This season Whitworth allowed five sacks and earned a pass blocking grade of 26.7 from Pro Football Focus.

Whitworth will join wide receiver A.J. Green, defensive tackle Geno Atkins and tight end Jermaine Gresham as representatives of the Bengals at the Pro Bowl. Gresham was named the replacement for injured Steelers tight end Heath Miller.
