The Buffalo Bills announced today that Bills DT Kyle Williams has been named to this year's Pro Bowl.
Williams has been named to the Pro Bowl in place of Miami Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh, who is unable to participate due to injury.
This is the fifth time in Williams' career that he has earned Pro Bowl honors after being named a Pro Bowler in 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Williams, the longest tenured Bill, joins Bruce Smith (11) and Fred Smerlas (5) as the only Bills defensive lineman to ever head to five Pro Bowls.
Williams appeared in 15 games during the 2016 season for the Bills, racking up 64 tackles, 5 sacks, 15 quarterback hits and 11 tackles for loss en route to earning Pro Bowl honors. Williams has tallied 40.5 sacks in his career—the most by any defensive tackle in Bills team history.
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.
