OAKLAND (CBS Sports) — Oakland Raiders tight end Zach Miller was added to the AFC Pro Bowl roster on Wednesday, replacing injured San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates.

This marks the first Pro Bowl selection for Miller, who led the Raiders this season in catches (60), receiving yards (685) and touchdown catches (5).

“I’m excited, and I can’t wait to get to Hawaii,” said Miller on going to his first Pro Bowl. “It feels great. Finally people are starting to notice. I’m enjoying that, and I’m excited about this opportunity. I just want to keep improving my game so I can go to the Pro Bowl every year.”
