The Miami Dolphins added a fourth representative in the Pro Bowl on Monday night as outside linebacker Bradley Chubb was named to the AFC’s roster as an alternate.
Chubb replaced Los Angeles Chargers outside linebacker Khalil Mack. He joined fellow Dolphins in wide receiver Tyreek Hill, left tackle Terron Armstead and cornerback Xavien Howard as Miami players named to the Pro Bowl.
The standout edge defender whom the Dolphins traded for with the Denver Broncos at the past season’s trade deadline earns his second career Pro Bowl selection, also getting the invite at the conclusion of the 2020 season with the Broncos.
In 16 games between Miami and Denver in 2022, Chubb totaled 39 tackles, eight sacks, a career-high three forced fumbles and a pass defensed. He had 2 1/2 of those regular-season sacks come in a Dolphins uniform and then added one in Miami’s wild-card playoff round loss at the Buffalo Bills on Jan. 15.
The Dolphins have four Pro Bowl representatives for the first time since their previous playoff appearance in 2016. That season, Miami had running back Jay Ajayi, wide receiver Jarvis Landry, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and defensive end Cameron Wake chosen.
Miami was bound to have quarterback Tua Tagovailoa also attend the Pro Bowl as the AFC’s first alternate at the position while Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes participates in the Super Bowl, but Tagovailoa will miss the exhibition as he remains in concussion protocol after missing the Dolphins’ last three games of the season, including the postseason defeat.
The Pro Bowl Games take place under an altered format this year in Las Vegas. There is one set of skills competitions Thursday night, followed by another set of skills challenges and a flag football game Sunday.
