Davin Joseph to represent Bucs in Pro Bowl



The Bucs' fortunes on the field this season don't suggest there's been much stellar play, but Davin Joseph has managed to transcend the team's 4-11 record.

Joseph, Tampa Bay's starting right guard, has been named to his second Pro Bowl, recognized for the second time in four years.

He was the Bucs' only selection to the NFL's all-star showcase to be held in January in Honolulu. Joseph was named to the team after the 2008 season, when he was one of three Tampa Bay players selected. It's the second time in two seasons a member of the Bucs' offensive line is Hawaii-bound; Left tackle Donald Penn was selected as a replacement for the Packers' Chad Clifton last season.

Joseph, Tampa Bay's first-round pick in 2006, has been a mainstay on the offensive line throughout his career. He was re-signed by the team in the preseason after the club made him its No. 1 free-agent priority.
