Bucs' Martin headed to Pro Bowl

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Buccaneers rookie running back Doug Martin will join teammates Vincent Jackson and Gerald McCoy in Honolulu for the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl.

The invite caps a stellar season for Martin, in which he racked up enough yards and touchdowns to give him one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history. His 1,926 all-purpose yards were the third most ever for an NFL rookie and his 1,454 rushing yards set a Bucs franchise rookie record.

Martin received the invite as a result of San Francisco's win over the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship, which sends the original selection, the 49ers' Frank Gore, to the Super Bowl. 

The Pro Bowl will be held next Sunday in Hawaii.
