Earlier today, we learned that both Tyrod Taylor and Eric Wood would be participating in the 2016 Pro Bowl as replacements for two players in the Super Bowl, Cam Newton and Ryan Kalil. But we all wondered about Richie Incognito, who had a stellar season since returning from suspension.
As it turns out, Incognito will be making the trip to Honolulu after all.

Adding the injured LeSean McCoy to the list, Buffalo will have four offensive starters considered Pro Bowlers for the 2015 season, with three of them actually participating in the game.
The biggest irony here might be that Incognito didn't announce it himself. Earlier today, he was the one to break the news of Wood and Taylor being named to the squad.
Incognito was out of football for more than a year after being suspended for his role in a bullying scandal involving his teammate at the time, Jonathan Martin. It's a strange road to "consecutive" Pro Bowls, but Incognito earned his first nod in 2012, his last full season in the league.
Incognito is a pending free agent that the team has said they would like to re-sign. His price likely just went up.
