Cameron Wake will represent Dolphins at the Pro Bowl

Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake was selected as a starter for the AFC in the 2013 Pro Bowl. Wake is the only Dolphins player to be named to the roster.

The selection marks the second time Wake will make an apperance in the Pro Bowl throughout the first four years of his NFL career. Wake made his Pro Bowl debut in 2010 when he recorded 14 sacks in his first season in the league. He set a new career high in sacks this year, totalling 15 with one game left to play. Wake also accumulated 49 tackles and contributed three forced fumbles.

Following a slow start to the season, Wake made a significant impact in Week 4 against the Cardinals when he had 4.5 sacks and then recorded a sack in five of the next six games. 

Once the Pro Bowl rosters are released there is always controversy surrounding the notable players that did not make the squads. The most surprising Dolphins omission was punter Brandon Fields who is near the top of league in all statistical categories amongst punters and did not make the Pro Bowl despite winning the fan vote.

On offense, center Mike Pouncey was left off the list leaving many to believe that the wrong Pouncey brother made the team. The 23 year old was viewed highly around the league as arguably the best center in the AFC this season as he excels in both the pass and run game.

On defense, safety Reshad Jones didn't make the roster after having the best season of his career. In the fifteen games he's played this season, Jones has 86 tackles, 4 interceptions, two forced fumbles and two recovered fumbles.
