Seven players booked flights to Hawaii on Monday, as the NFL announced some more changes to the Pro Bowl rosters.

The AFC team will have two new centers. Colts C Jeff Saturday learned he will be making the Pro Bowl for the fifth time, as he replaces Maurkice Pouncey of the Steelers, who had to opt out when his team advanced to the Super Bowl. Saturday will team up with Browns C Alex Mack in the middle of the AFC's line, as Mack takes the spot of the Jets' Nick Mangold, who is hurt.

Dolphins DE Randy Starks also takes the spot of an AFC champion, as he replaces Pittsburgh DE Brett Keisel.

Four NFC players also were added to that conference's roster. Buccaneers OLT Donald Penn, Vikings CB Antoine Winfield and Falcons CB Brent Grimes replace Chad Clifton, Tramon Williams and Charles Woodson, respectively, of the NFC-champion Packers. Meanwhile, Panthers OLB Jon Beason takes the spot of injured Bears LB Lance Briggs.

A pair of Redskins defenders were added to the NFC squad earlier on Monday.
