Kyle Williams Is Fifth Current Bill With Pro Bowl Experience

When Kyle Williams takes the field this Sunday as a member of the AFC Pro Bowl squad, he will become just the fifth current Buffalo Bills player with experience in the All-Star Game - and only the fourth that has been named to the squad while a member of the Bills.

Defensive lineman Marcus Stroud and outside linebacker Shawne Merriman share the most Pro Bowl nods amongst current Bills, but neither have been selected since joining Buffalo. Stroud made three straight Pro Bowl rosters from 2003-2005 with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Merriman also attended three straight years from 2005-2007 as a member of the San Diego Chargers.

Brian Moorman was the AFC representative in back-to-back years in 2005 and 2006. He was part of one of the most memorable plays in Pro Bowl history in 2007, when he was absolutely demolished on a fake punt by late Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor. Meanwhile, Terrence McGee represented the AFC as a return specialist in 2004.

The only other player on the Bills roster with a Pro Bowl nod is Jairus Byrd, who was voted into the game as a rookie, but could not participate due to injury.
