Bengals safety Jerome Miles, a 2010 undrafted free agent, has had a quiet season this year. Or so it would seem. While defensively he hasn't made a noticeable appearance on the field, Miles has played all seven games this season as a special teams player, recording only four tackles though largely responsible for many of the special teams' successes.

Such as the long returns by Brandon Tate and Adam Jones. Such as a punt downed at the two-yard line (with Andrew Hawkins) against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

According to Paul Denver Jr. with CBSSports.com's Rapid Reports, Bengals special teams coach Darrin Simmons nominated Miles for special teams for this year's Pro Bowl.

Does Miles really even care?

"We’re guys who don’t need to be in the spotlight," Miles said.

Miles signed with the Cincinnati Bengals on April 30 as an undrafted free agent before being waived on September 4 (final cuts), returning the next day to the team's practice squad. He was later promoted to the 53-man roster in late November when Cincinnati's secondary experienced several season-ending injuries, quickly becoming a special teams force, leading the team with three special teams tackles against the Jets.
