Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was added to the NFC Pro Bowl team today, according to the NFL.
White will replace Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who is unable to participate due to injury.
White finished the season with 100 catches for 1,296 yards and eight touchdowns.
He finished second in the NFL, and led the NFC in receptions for the second straight season.
He became just the eighth player in NFL history to record five consecutive seasons with at least 80 catches and 1,000 yards.
This year marks his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl selection as he made the NFC squad in 2008, 2009 and 2010. He joins tight end Tony Gonzalez as Falcons who will represent the club in Hawaii on January 29, 2012.
