The Buffalo Bills announced today that Bills CB Stephon Gilmore has been named to this year's Pro Bowl.

The Bills have now had five players named to the Pro Bowl this season—marking the most for the team since 1998 when six Bills earned the honor.

Gilmore earns his first career Pro Bowl berth after tallying five interceptions on the year—the most by a Bill since Jairus Byrd's five interceptions in 2012. Since entering the NFL in 2012 with Buffalo as the Bills' first round pick (10th overall), Gilmore has provided the Bills with a consistent force in coverage as his 14 career interceptions rank fourth among all AFC defenders since 2012.

The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 29, 2017 and simulcast live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.  Fans may visit NFL.com/ProBowlOnSale to purchase game tickets. 

The 2017 Pro Bowl will feature a return to the traditional AFC vs. NFC format following three years using a revised, "unconferenced" structure.
