New Orleans Saints left tackle Jammal Brown was officially added to the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster as an injury replacement. The invitation is fitting for Brown, who was selected as a Pro Bowl starter in 2006 but couldn’t go because of his own knee injury.

Brown, a four-year veteran who started 15 games for the Saints this season, was selected as the top alternate for the NFC last month in a combined vote of players, coaches and fans. He will join quarterback Drew Brees as the Saints’ only representatives in the game, which will be played Feb. 8 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The NFL officially added six alternates to the Pro Bowl rosters on Tuesday – Brown, Tampa Bay cornerback Ronder Barber and Buccaneers guard Davin Joseph, Seattle linebacker Julian Peterson, Dallas offensive tackle Flozell Adams and Denver guard Casey Wiegmann.

Brown and Adams replaced Seattle tackle Walter Jones and Washington tackle Chris Samuels, both of whom are injured.
