Four Broncos Named to AP All-Pro Teams

Posted Jan 3, 2014

Peyton Manning received all 50 votes as the only All-Pro quarterback in 2013.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The accolades keep rolling in for the Broncos.

Friday morning, the Associated Press 2013 NFL All-Pro teams were announced, and four Broncos made the cut -- two first-teamers and two second-teamers.

Quarterback Peyton Manning tops the list, having received all 50 votes for the All-Pro team. The unanimous selection means Manning is a first-team All-Pro, and there is no second-team quarterback.

It's the seventh time Manning has been named a first-team All-Pro, and the second consecutive season he has earned that distinction. The now-13-time Pro Bowler set single-season NFL records for passing yards and passing touchdowns in 2013. He finished the season completing 450-of-659 passes for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns with a passer rating of 115.1.

Joining him on the first team is guard Louis Vasquez, who was also selected to his first career Pro Bowl this year. Vasquez was part of Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway's third straight impact free agent class this offseason. He was one of just three 16-game starters at guard this season to not allow a sack.

"It’s a humbling deal," Vasquez said. "I have a great supporting cast with the rest of the O-line, our offense and just our team in general. Just having great players around me helps. Everybody else looks that good, guys like Peyton just make you want to elevate your game. Again, its humbling and I can’t thank my teammates enough.”

Vasquez was the only Bronco to participate in 100 percent of the team’s offensive or defensive snaps for the season, as he was on the field for all 1,207 offensive plays.

Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was named a second-team All-Pro -- his first All-Pro selection -- after a regular-season that saw him top 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns for the second consecutive campaign. He was voted to his second straight Pro Bowl as well. He finished second in the NFL with 14 receiving touchdowns and ranked fourth with 1,430 receiving yards in 2013.

"To hear that news, it’s been great," Thomas said. "I wish I could have made first team, but second team is not bad, so I’ll take it. But like you said, it’s been a great year of a lot of things. Records, All-Pro, Pro Bowl. Hopefully we can make it to a Super Bowl now.”

Matt Prater closes out the Broncos' All-Pro honorees as the second-team kicker. It's Prater's first All-Pro selection, which goes hand-in-hand with his first Pro Bowl selection, after leading the league in field-goal percentage and setting a new NFL record with a 64-yarder made in Week 15. The Broncos’ all-time leader in field-goal accuracy, Prater also set a NFL record with 81 touchbacks on kickoffs in 2013.

“They’re all very deserving," Head Coach John Fox said. "I think any time you have team success, you get some individual accolades and vice-versa. To have team success you have to have some individuals play well and all those guys are very deserving.”
