Pro Bowl 2012: Let The 'Official' Tweets Begin From Roddy White

The Atlanta Falcons are sending just two representatives to the 2012 Pro Bowl this year, and while Tony Gonzalez was the only member of the team who was actually invited, the other member should look to play a prominent role in many of the festivities in Honolulu.

Roddy White was selected to the Pro Bowl as a first alternate, and while quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Cam Newton will enjoy throwing to such an elite talent there are others who will enjoy seeing White's other talents at display.

For the first time ever, the NFL will allow players to tweet during a game. Tweet stations will be setup on the sidelines for players to use and the house money will be on Roddy White being one of the key tweeters during the Pro Bowl. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. ET.
