Five Steelers named to 2012 Pro Bowl roster

The NFL announced Pro Bowl rosters tonight and a few Steelers were honored. 

Ben Roethlisberger, Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Wallace will represent the Steelers on offense. Troy Polamalu is the lone representative for the defense and, surprisingly, Antonio Brown is the AFC’s starting KR. Pouncey and Polamalu are ‘starters.’ 

Brown is a little bit of a surprise. A few other Steelers were probably close — Heath Miller, Brown (WR) and Ike Taylor come to mind. It’s not worth getting worked up over. This whole thing is pretty meaningless in the end. 

The Pro Bowl will take place on Jan. 29, 2012 in Hawaii.
