Tampa Bay will be having a representative in Hawaii after all. With Green Bay Pro Bowl offensive tackle Chad Clifton heading to the Super Bowl to face the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bucs left tackle Donald Penn, who was an alternate, was named as Clifton's replacement.
Buccaneers left tackle Donald Penn will be going to his first Pro Bowl. Penn, who was named a Pro Bowl alternate this year, will replace Green Bay's Pro Bowl left tackle Chad Clifton as the Packers made the Super Bowl on Sunday by beating Chicago. Super Bowl participants are ineligible for the Pro Bowl due to the practice time needed to prepare for the championship game. For Super Bowl predictions, click here.

Penn, who avoided a hold out this year by signing a six-year contract extension worth $37.2 million in base salary, was the second alternate to the 2011 Pro Bowl, which will be played on Sunday, January 29 in Hawaii. Atlanta Falcons right tackle Tyson Clabo, who was also an alternate, replaced Philadelphia tackle Jason Peters earlier in the week.

Tampa Bay's other Pro Bowl alternates this year were tight end Kellen Winslow and quarterback Josh Freeman. The last Bucs Pro Bowl offensive lineman to head to Hawaii was right guard Davin Joseph, who made the trip to the island after being an alternate in 2008. Joseph was also joined by return man Clifton Smith and linebacker Derrick Brooks that year.

    SCUBOG No, there is still absolutely no reason to watch it. I agree with Mike Greenberg: Get rid of it and the week after the SB have an awards banquet. Have a 3 hour prime time thing where the Coach of the Year, rookies, pro bowlers, MVP, etc... are all announced. Like they do in hockey. The games are pointless. It is not real footbal, just like the NHL and NBA are not real.. None of them have any semblance of defense. I did flip for about 2 minutes and noticed PENN IS MASSIVE. Hope they keep a weight clause with him and keep on him about it.
