Bills linebacker Tremaine Edmunds is a Pro Bowler for the first time.

The team announced Edmunds will replace Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower on the AFC all-star team.

Edmunds finished his second season with a team-high 115 tackles, 1.5 sacks and nine passes defensed. He made 121 tackles as a rookie, making him the first player ever to have two seasons with 100-plus tackles by the age of 21.

Edmunds, the 16th overall choice in 2018, turns 22 in May.

He is the team’s second Pro Bowler, joining cornerback Tre'Davious White.

  1. Are they designated as a replacement player?
    I ask because they cited the number of Pro Bowls that a player had in his career.
    So it matters whether or not the player was voted to the Pro Bowl or if he was simply a replacement player.

  2. Big deal making a pro bowl team.
    Making first team is a much bigger deal. The pathetic press and other media types make a big deal out of it as it requires ZERO thought.

  3. Hightower likely backed out because they couldn’t steal enough signs to give him any confidence.

  4. I will be unable to watch the Pro Bowl because I will be rearranging my sock drawer while it is on. Otherwise I would most definitely be watching it…honest…

  5. Dude is still real young, still makes mistakes, but his size and ability to go sideline to sideline few players can duplicate. In the future, I doubt he will be a full in
