Bills linebacker Matt Milano will be part of this year’s Pro Bowl festivities.

The Bills announced on Friday that Milano has been named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster. He takes the place of Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt, who pulled out due to an injury.

Milano was named a first-team All-Pro for the first time in his career this season and he’s also a first-time Pro Bowler. He had 99 tackles, three interceptions, 1.5 sacks, an interception return for a touchdown, and two forced fumbles while starting all 15 games he played during the regular season.

The NFL has done away with the Pro Bowl game this year and will instead hold various skills competitions, a dodgeball game, and a 7-on-7 flag football game as part of the festivities in Las Vegas.

  1. The pro bowl is such a joke. It allowed for Mac Jones to be listed as a pro bowler as the 19th alternate last year. And now this year, Milano, who is an all pro, had to get in as an alternate. What a joke.

  2. What a joke.

    While I agree with your assessment I can’t help laugh at the irony of the source making the comment.

    Haven’t watched a Pro Bowl in 30 years or more.

  3. If the Pro bowl wasn’t already enough of a joke, now they’re competing in badminton.

  4. If I were Matt Milano, I would “regretfully decline.
    The snub says everything you need to know about that game.
    A cash grab for the league, and a popularity contest by the networks.

  5. TJ is better off. With his luck lately, he’d probably tear an Achilles just stepping out of the limo to the flag football field.
