KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The 2012 Pro Bowl selections prove the Kansas City Chiefs have talent, despite a 2-13 record heading into Sunday's finale against the Denver Broncos.
The NFL announced Wednesday five Chiefs will represent the organization in the annual all-star game in Honolulu, Hawaii. Safety Eric Berry and linebacker Tamba Hali have been designated starters for the AFC. Running-back Jamal Charles, punter Dustin Colquitt and linebacker Derrick Johnson have been selected as reserves.
Berry has recorded 80 tackles for the Chiefs, including nine tackles for a loss. The third-year starter earned a Pro Bowl nod in 2010 as a rookie. He missed nearly all of the 2011 season due to injury.
Hali led Kansas City recording nine sacks for a second-straight season. His play in 2012 earned him back-to-back Pro Bowl invitations.
Charles leads the AFC in rushing yards (1,456) and yards from scrimmage. His 5.82 yards-per-carry career average is the highest in NFL history. This is his second Pro Bowl in three seasons.
Linebacker Derrick Johnson leads the Chiefs in tackles with 119. This is his second-straight Pro Bowl invitation.
Punter Dustin Colquitt will play in his first Pro Bowl. He set a Chiefs record in 2012 with 42 punts inside the 20-yard line.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
