Welker, Light named to Pro Bowl


Receiver Wes Welker and tackle Matt Light have been added to the AFC Pro Bowl rosters, the Patriots announced.

They join six teammates who were named to the annual all-star game last week: Tom Brady, Logan Mankins, Jerod Mayo, Vince Wilfork, Devin McCourty, and Brandon Meriweather.

This is the third straight Pro Bowl nod for Welker, who has a league-best 432 receptions since joining the Patriots in 2007, and it is also the third for Light, who started all 16 games this regular season.

Welker is replacing injured Texans wideout Andre Johnson, while Light steps in for Miami’s Jake Long, who is also hurt.
