Tyson Clabo added to Pro Bowl
By Pat Yasinskas
The group making the trip from Flowery Branch, Ga. to Honolulu next week just got larger.
Atlanta offensive tackle Tyson Clabo has been added the NFC Pro Bowl squad, the Falcons announced. Clabo enters as an alternate after Philadelphia's Jason Peters pulled out of the game.
That gives the Falcons a league-high eight Pro Bowlers, the most in franchise history. John Abraham, Tony Gonzalez, Ovie Mughelli, Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, Eric Weems and Roddy White already were selected to the Pro Bowl.
Atlanta coach Mike Smith and his staff will be coaching the NFC Pro Bowl team.
