Packers CB Tramon Williams has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster, the league announced today. Williams replaces Eagles CB Asante Samuel, who is unable to participate due to injury.

Williams, who was signed by the Packers to the practice squad as a free agent in November 2006, started all 16 games this season for the first time as a pro and led the team with a career-high six interceptions and a career-best 23 passes defensed. He also added a career-high 63 tackles (54 solo), two fumble recoveries, a forced fumble and a sack. He has also made three key interceptions in two playoff games.

Williams is the sixth Green Bay player to be named to the team, joining OLT Chad Clifton, FS Nick Collins, WR Greg Jennings, LOLB Clay Matthews, and CB Charles Woodson. The six Pro Bowl selections for the Packers are the most since they also had the same number in 2003, and it is the second time in the past three seasons that the team has had three defensive backs selected.
