Three Bills named as starters for Pro Bowl

The Buffalo Bills will be represented at the 2005 Pro Bowl in Hawaii by three players. Those player are defensive tackle Sam Adams, linebacker Takeo Spikes and return specialist Terrence McGee.

This is the first time Terrence McGee has been named to the team. McGee, a second year player from Northwestern State college, has been the most dynamic returnman the Bills have had in ages. The 24-year old leads the AFC (and NFL) in kick returns for TDs with three. He's tied for the top spot in the AFC in kickoff return average with 26.6 per return.

Sam Adams, a Texas A&M product, has been one of the key cogs in the Bills defense, which is tied for second in the AFC in yards allowed per carry (3.6) and ranks fourth in the entire NFL in rushing yards per game. The unit as a whole ranks second in the AFC. The 345-pound tackle has posted 35 tackles, four sacks, one interception, fumble recovery and two defended passes. This marks the first time as a Bill that Adams has been named to the Pro Bowl; the last time he was named was in 2001 as a member of the Baltimore Ravens.

Takeo Spikes, a University of Auburn product, has recorded 86 tackles and four interceptions, including two for touchdowns. The seven-year veteran is heading to his second straight Pro Bowl as a Buffalo Bill.

Additionally, WR Eric Moulds, DE Aaron Schobel and CB Nate Clements have been chosen as alternates for the Feb. 13 game in Hawaii.
