Three more members of the Bills will be going to Las Vegas for this year’s Pro Bowl festivities.

The team announced on Monday that left tackle Dion Dawkins, tight end Dawson Knox, and left guard Rodger Saffold have been added to the AFC roster. Quarterback Josh Allen, wide receiver Stefon Diggs, safety Jordan Poyer, and center Mitch Morse were initial selections for the event and linebacker Matt Milano was also added as a replacement this month.

Dawkins, who is replacing Chiefs tackle Orlando Brown, and Saffold, who is replacing Colts guard Quenton Nelson, are in the Pro Bowl for the second time. Knox, who will take the place of Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, is a first-time Pro Bowler.

There will be other replacements to come as several other Chiefs were named to the AFC’s roster for the collection of skill contests and other activities that are taking the place of the actual Pro Bowl this season.

  1. Roger Saffold? Didn’t he rank next to last in pff ratings of guards in the NFL? Didn’t he and Ryan Bates personify the O’s in swiss cheese?

  2. Did Saffold excel at flag football as a child? It can be the only reason he’s in the Pro Bowl. As an NFL lineman, he is no where near “Pro Bowl” caliber and he is a testament to what a farce the Pro Bowl is.

  3. I hope Saffold doesnt play for the Bills next season, he was terrible. Bet the house on the NFC if he’s starting
