Atlanta's White added to Pro Bowl roster

Atlanta wide receiver Roddy White has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster, the Falcons said Tuesday.

He will take the roster spot of Minnesota’s Sidney Rice. This will mark the second straight season White has been to the Pro Bowl.

“I’m excited to see Roddy be recognized for a fantastic season,” Atlanta coach Mike Smith said. “Roddy contributed to this team in numerous ways, and his addition to the NFC team is well deserved.”

White led the Falcons with 1,153 receiving yards and 85 catches while scoring a career-high 11 touchdowns.
