Mathis joins Pro Bowl roster

It didn’t take long for Robert Mathis to be added to the AFC’s Pro Bowl roster:

Defensive end Robert Mathis was added to the AFC all-star squad, according to agent Hadley Englehard. He joins pass-rushing teammate Dwight Freeney, who earlier was named to his seventh Pro Bowl.

Mathis was a first alternate and replaces Andre Carter, New England’s injured defensive end.
