CINCINNATI — Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins has been voted onto the American Football Conference’s 2019 Pro Bowl starting team, according to a Tuesday night news release from the Bengals.

The Jan. 27 game will be Atkins’ seventh Pro Bowl, making him the most-selected defensive Bengals player in team history.

“It’s very rewarding for him to be elected to the Pro Bowl again,” head coach Marvin Lewis said in the news release. “He deserves it.”

Fellow Bengals A.J. Green, Joe Mixon, S. Clayton Fejedelem and Alex Erickson were also named to the team as alternates.
