The 2013 NFL Pro Bowl rosters were announced this evening. The Kansas City Chiefs will be sending five players and a couple of them are surprises.

Here they are:

1. Jamaal Charles
2. Tamba Hali
3. Derrick Johnson
4. Eric Berry
5. Dustin Colquitt

Berry and Hali are starters, as is Colquuitt.

I have to say, a couple of these surprise me. We told you a few days ago that Eric Berry was regaining his Pro Bowl form but I didn’t think enough people would have noticed in time to get him there this year. Looks like I was wrong.

Tamba Hali had an excellent year, though it was a down year for him.

The most deserved selection here, save Charles, is Dustin Colquitt. He has been so good for so long and has been passed up for punters with better average yards per-punt. Finally, Colquitt is being recognized for his ability to pin teams deep.
