DAVIE (CBSMiami) – Mike Pouncey isn’t the only Miami Dolphins player going to the Pro Bowl afterall.

The National Football League announced on Wednesday that Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry and tackle Branden Albert have been selected to participate in the 2016 Pro Bowl.

The game will be played on Sunday, January 31st at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Landry set a Dolphins franchise record with 110 receptions and his 1,157 receiving yards were the sixth-most for any Miami player in a single season.

This is Landry’s first Pro Bowl selection in just his second NFL season.

Albert will be going to the Pro Bowl for the second time in his career but first time as a member of the Dolphins.

He started 14 games for Miami this season which is especially impressive considering he was less than a year removed from having major knee surgery.

Albert is the first Dolphins tackle selected to the Pro Bowl since Jake Long in 2011.

Landry replaces Steelers wideout Antonio Brown and Albert replaces Redskins tackle Trent Williams.

The Dolphins have had at least one representative at the Pro Bowl in all but two seasons of the team’s existence (1980 and 1997).
