Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus had a career year and it has earned him a Pro Bowl nod. Dareus will serve as an injury replacement for San Francisco 49ers DL Justin Smith.
Dareus finished the season with a career-high 71 tackles and a career-high 7.5 sacks and ranked as one of just five players in the NFL to finish with over 70 tackles and 7.0 sacks. The third-year defensive tackle will join fellow linemates Kyle and Mario Williams, who are each making their third Pro Bowl appearance.

With Dareus now headed to Hawaii, four players from Buffalo’s top 10 defensive unit will represent the team at the league’s annual all-star game with Jairus Byrd the other Bills defender.
