Jaguars fullback Montell Owens has been added to the AFC’s Pro Bowl roster.
Owens replaces New England’s Matthew Slater as the conference’s special teams player. Owens joins running back Maurice Jones-Drew as the team’s only representative in Hawaii for next Sunday’s game.
Owens, who was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2010, led the Jaguars in special teams tackles in 2011 with 13 and had two forced fumbles. He owns the franchise record for career special teams tackles with 108. He has played in 91 games since joining Jacksonville as an undrafted free agent from Maine in 2006. He set the franchise’s single-season record with 30 special teams tackles in 2009 and was named a first alternate to the Pro Bowl.
