Chiefs' Green replaces Brady in Pro Bowl

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Jan. 27, 2006) -- Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Trent Green was put on the AFC's Pro Bowl roster, replacing injured New England quarterback Tom Brady.

It was the second Pro Bowl selection for Green, who also made the AFC team after the 2003 season.

Green threw for 4,014 yards and 17 touchdowns this past season, completing 62 percent (317-for-502) of his throws.

He finished the year with a 90.1 quarterback rating, his fourth straight 90-plus season. Green is the only active quarterback to do that and only the third in NFL history behind Steve Young and Brett Favre.

Green's selection gives Kansas City six Pro Bowl picks, although offensive tackle Willie Roaf is injured and will not play. The others are running back Larry Johnson, tight end Tony Gonzalez, and guards Will Shields and Brian Waters.

The game is scheduled for Feb. 12 in Honolulu.
