Titans S Michael Griffin Looks to Climb Pro Bowl Ladder

Tennessee Titans safety Michael Griffin will play in his second Pro Bowl since entering the NFL as a first-round pick out of the University of Texas in 2007.

Once again added as an injury replacement, Griffin tells Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean that he's working to get the Pro Bowl nod on the original ballot.

"It is a good accomplishment. It's great to be back," Griffin told Wyatt. "But your wish is to get voted in the top three picks. Being a first alternate is something positive, and it lets me know I am going in the right direction. But there's a ladder I am still trying to climb and I'm trying to get better each year.

"I think I have a long ways to go."

With the Pro Bowl voting process essentially being little more than a popularity contest, playing the same conference as Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu won't help Griffin, or any other young safety in the AFC, get those original ballot nods, which are required to trigger most Pro Bowl salary escalators and bonuses in NFL contracts.
