Pro Bowl Familiar Territory for This Year's Selections

Posted Dec 28, 2012

Denver's five 2013 Pro Bowlers have combined for a league-high 32 Pro Bowl selections.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – All of the Broncos players named to the AFC’s 2013 Pro Bowl squad accepted the honor as if they’d been there before.

Which is probably because they have.

The five Broncos Pro Bowlers have combined for 32 selections, led by cornerback Champ Bailey and Peyton Manning, who were both named to their 12th All Star Game – a record for their respective positions.

CAREER SELECTIONS, 2013 PRO BOWLERS
TEAM NO.
Denver Broncos 32
New England Patriots 29
Baltimore Ravens 22
San Francisco 49ers 22

“The only time I really concentrate on that is in the offseason,” Bailey said. “I look at what I’ve done and then I say I want to do better. And that’s been every offseason since I’ve been in the league and that’s the way I’m going to treat this offseason. That’s just the way I am.”

Bailey, who had already earned the most career selections of any cornerback in league history, passed Rod Woodson for the most among all defensive backs this year.

“I’m not really as high on these individual awards as I used to be, because I want that big ring,” Bailey said. “But, just to be mentioned with guys like Woodson, that means more.”

Manning and Bailey make the Broncos the only team in the NFL to have a pair of players with double-digit Pro Bowl honors. In fact, only one other team has multiple players with more than five selections.

In total, the Broncos’ five 2013 Pro Bowlers have the most career selections of any team, with the Patriots’ seven players combining for a second-best 29 Pro Bowls.

Defensive end Elvis Dumervil made his third, as did the man tasked with blocking him during training camp in left tackle Ryan Clady. Linebacker Von Miller was selected for the second time and became the first Bronco to make it to the Pro Bowl in his first two NFL seasons.

“I’m just honored,” Clady said. “My peers and coaches around the league voted me in and I’m just honored to be in this position again.”
