The NFL Pro Bowl always brings its share of drama.

This season is no exception.  Notable exclusions to the AFC roster are Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and New York Jets linebacker David Harris, who was chosen as a second alternate.

For Harris, the snub is a surprising one.  Leading the AFC inside linebackers in nearly every single statistical department, including interceptions (4), sacks (5.5), pass deflections (12) and defensive touchdowns (1), the Michigan linebacker is arguably the teams MVP this season.

Head coach Rex Ryan was not pleased about the omission of Harris.

“He’s made more plays than anybody in this league,” Ryan said. “I told him I figured it out. We are going to get him to the Pro Bowlnext year. All he has to do is play exactly how he played this year, but take a dance class this summer, do something, because I can’t believe our opponents didn’t vote for him to be in the Pro Bowl.”
