With Tom Brady backing out of the Pro Bowl due to injury, that left Ben Roethlisberger next in line to go.
He, too, turned it down thanks to a sore shoulder that developed late in the season.
That means Matt Schaub will be heading to Miami.
Roethlisberger appeared to have problems with his throwing shoulder during the Steelers’ season-ending game at Miami on Jan. 3. Coach Mike Tomlin later said he doesn’t think Roethlisberger will require any medical procedures to correct the problem.
