Zach Brown thought he deserved a spot in the Pro Bowl.
The Buffalo Bills' inside linebacker will get it after all. Brown, who played high school football at Wilde Lake and collegiately at North Carolina, has been named to the AFC roster in place of the New England Patriots' Dont'a Hightower, who is busy preparing for the Super Bowl.
Brown, who was a second-round draft choice of the Tennessee Titans in 2012, finished second in the NFL in total tackles with 130, and also had four sacks, four passes defensed, two forced fumble and an interception. This will be his first Pro Bowl appearance.
