The Buffalo Bills announced today that Bills LB Zach Brown has been named to this year's Pro Bowl.
The Bills have now had six players named to the Pro Bowl this season—marking the most for the team since 1998 when six Bills earned the honor.
Brown heads to Orlando for his first career Pro Bowl appearance after recording a team-high and career-high 149 tackles, which ranked as the second in the NFL. Brown's 149 tackles tied for the fifth-most ever by a Bill in franchise history since tackles became a stat in 1994. In addition, Brown accumulated four sacks, two forced fumbles, eight QB hits, one interception and 11 tackles for a loss on the season.
Brown will be replacing New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower, who is unable to participate due to injury.
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.
