Steelers' Heath Miller headed to first Pro Bowl
Steelers tight end Heath Miller will be named to his first Pro Bowl, replacing the Indianapolis Colts' Dallas Clark, the Steelers announced yesterday.
Clark, who led AFC tight ends in the voting, must forfeit his spot in the Pro Bowl because the Colts will be in Super Bowl XLIV.
Miller, the Steelers' first-round draft choice in 2005, will be the team's first tight end to play in the Pro Bowl since Eric Green in 1994 and only the fourth in franchise history, joining Elbie Nickel (three berths) and Preston Carpenter.
Miller had a career high 76 receptions for 789 yards and six touchdowns this season.
