The NFL also said that Cowboys free safety Ken Hamlin, a first-time Pro Bowler, will replace Taylor as the starter in Hawaii.
"I appreciate being the first alternate to go," said Williams, who is going to the Pro Bowl for the fifth straight year. "We are going to do` something special for Sean and his family."
Williams wouldn't elaborate on the plans to honor Taylor, who died Nov. 27 after being shot during a burglary at his home in Florida.
"Making it was definitely an honor. Roy is definitely deserving, he's done a great job as well. He's been there a lot more than me, so I'll definitely follow him," Hamlin said. "Making it means a lot to me. It's definitely an honor. And to be a starter in that type of game is definitely a big honor."
