Davin Joseph makes the Pro Bowl as the lone Tampa Bay Buccaneer

This has been a dismal season so far, but there's a tiny reason for Bucs fans to be a little proud of a part of their team today: Davin Joseph made the Pro Bowl. The sixth-year offensive guard has earned his Pro Bowl berth with strong play after earning a seven-year, $53 million contract this offseason. Joseph has been a powerful drive blocker and solid pass protector this season, and he's been the key to the Bucs' strong running game. Or at least, a running game that is strong when the Bucs do choose to run the ball.

Joseph hasn't always been used to the best of his abilities, as the Bucs have a tendency to call a lot of zone running plays which don't highlight his strengths. But the veteran has done a good job, and is one of the few Bucs to deserve a Pro Bowl berth this season.

Per Stephen Holder, Davin Joseph is the only Buccaneer to be named to the Pro Bowl, and he will be the backup guard on the NFC roster behind Saints guards Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks.

Other Tampa Bay Buccaneers who might have warranted some consideration are Connor Barth, Michael Koenen and Donald Penn, although Penn has had a poor couple of games recently after having a very strong start to the season.
