Gbaja-Biamila finished with 10 sacks last year, his third straight season of double-digit sacks. The 6-foot-4, 255-pounder was seventh on the team with 55 tackles. He played in about 87% of the downs on defense.
Gbaja-Biamila joins running back Ahman Green, guard Marco Rivera, center Mike Flanagan and tight end Bubba Franks in the Pro Bowl. Quarterback Brett Favre was named to the NFC squad in December but withdrew from the game because of his thumb injury. Flanagan and Franks were first-alternates who were recently named to the team because of injuries to players in front of them.
The Pro Bowl begins tonight on ESPN at 6:30 p.m. (CT) at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
