2011 NFL Pro Bowl: Tyson Clabo Added To NFC Roster

The Atlanta Falcons put more players in the 2011 Pro Bowl than any other team this season and the number keeps growing with the news that Falcons right tackle Tyson Clabo has been added to the NFC roster. He takes the place of Philadelphia Eagles lineman Jason Peters, who withdrew Thursday. It's Clabo's first-ever Pro Bowl trip.

Clabo, who's started every game since 2008 at right tackle, has been the Falcons' best offensive lineman in this writer's opinion and - with his free agency pending - is priority one for the Falcons management this offseason. Adding a Pro Bowl to his resume can only help his case. His success is even more impressive when you consider he was an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest. He had a cup of coffee in Denver and with the Giants before catching on with the Falcons and has been paving the way for the Falcons ground game ever since.
