KANSAS CITY (AP) -- Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt is finally getting some much-deserved attention.

Colquitt was voted to his first Pro Bowl this week after averaging nearly 47 yards on 75 punts for the Chiefs, who have just two wins to show for themselves in an otherwise forgettable year.

Colquitt will be joined in Hawaii by running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry and linebackers Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson. But perhaps with the exception of Charles, none of them have been as valuable or deserving this season as Colquitt.

He's second in the NFL with 42 punts inside the 20, matching the record shared by three others coming into the year. Only Arizona's Dave Zastudil has more with 44, but he's also punted 31 times more than Colquitt.
