Titans Player Named Last-Minute Addition to Pro Bowl Roster
While this season didn't turn out the way the Tennessee Titans and their fans had hoped, it wasn't all bad. There were still plenty of bright spots, including the strong individual play of several players.
One of those players was center Ben Jones, who just earned his first Pro Bowl selection.

Jones, 33, probably didn't expect to make the Pro Bowl this year after multiple concussions caused him to miss Tennessee's final three games. A spot on the AFC's roster opened up after Creed Humphrey of the Kansas City Chiefs opted out to play in the Super Bowl, however, and Jones was chosen to fill it.
Despite ending the season on the IR, Jones still turned in a solid season in 2022. The 33-year-old started 12 games for the Titans before going down, playing in 96% of the offensive snaps.
It's an impressive honor for Jones to make his first Pro Bowl after 11 seasons in the NFL. Long after many of his peers retired, he's still playing and performing at a high level.
Thankfully for Jones, he shouldn't have to worry about concussions during the new-look Pro Bowl, which is safer now that it includes a series of skills competitions as well as a flag football game.
