Miami – Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito was named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster today. The selection is the first for Incognito in his career as he replaces Baltimore Ravens guard Marshal Yanda.

“It’s an honor to be named to the Pro Bowl,” said Incognito. “I am looking forward to going to Hawaii and representing the Dolphins as well as the AFC. I would like to thank all those that made this possible especially my fellow offensive linemen and the entire offensive unit as well as the coaches.”
“I want to congratulate Richie on being named to the Pro Bowl,” stated Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin. “It is a well-deserved honor and is a reward for the hard work and commitment he showed in 2012.”
Incognito, an eighth-year pro from the University of Nebraska, started all 16 games in 2012 for the Dolphins.
