CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Phil Dawson and Joe Thomas will have company in Hawaii.
Josh Cribbs will be named to the Pro Bowl next week following the AFC Championship game between New England and Baltimore.
Cribbs was named a first alternate as both a returner and a specialist and with Ravens returner Jacoby Jones and Patriots specialist Matthew Slater squaring off for a trip to Super Bowl XLVII, Cribbs is guaranteed a spot on the AFC squad.
The question is, which one?
It will mark the 3rd Pro Bowl appearance for Cribbs, who will be a free agent this offseason. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2007 and 2009 as well.
Should New England win Sunday, linebacker D’Qwell Jackson would also go to Hawaii. Jackson was named a first alternate at inside linebacker. Jerod Mayo of the Patriots is currently the starter.
