MIAMI (AP) -Miami Dolphins rookie tackle Jake Long was selected to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday as a replacement for Buffalo's Jason Peters, who had a late-season knee injury.
Long, the first player taken in the April draft, becomes the first top overall pick to make the Pro Bowl as a rookie since New Orleans running back George Rogers in 1981. Long's the fourth No. 1 pick to do so since the 1970 merger.
``It's a huge honor to be named to the Pro Bowl team,'' Long said. ``I am excited about the opportunity to join so many other great players in the game.''
Long started every game for Miami. Two other Dolphins, running back Ronnie Brown and linebacker Joey Porter, were selected for the Pro Bowl in Hawaii on Feb. 8.
