[KC Chiefs.com] The NFL announced today that wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, guard Brian Waters and running back Jamaal Charles will represent the Chiefs in the 2011 Pro Bowl.
Charles and Bowe are Pro Bowl selections for the first time, Waters for the fifth time.
Bowe is just ninth in the AFC in catches (67) and fifth in yardage (1,094) but is the runaway leader in receiving touchdowns (15).
Waters represents an offensive line that led the way for the Chiefs to lead the league in rushing.
Charles is second in the AFC with 1,380 yards. His per-carry average of 6.4 yards is more than a yard better than anyone else with more than 100 carries. He also had 43 catches.
Quarterback Matt Cassel, linebacker Tamba Hali and cornerback Brandon Flowers were among the strong candidates who didn’t get selected.
