ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Von Miller is headed back to the Pro Bowl.
For the seventh time in his career, Miller will represent the Broncos at the NFL’s all-star game, the league announced Tuesday. He was named a starter for the game.
Miller’s selection ties him with former linebacker Randy Gradishar for the most Pro Bowl appearances among Broncos linebackers. Only Steve Atwater (8), Champ Bailey (8) and John Elway (9) have been selected to the Pro Bowl more times among Broncos players.
He is tied with Atwater and Bailey for the most Pro Bowls in a player’s first eight seasons with the Broncos.
Miller has earned a Pro Bowl nod every year since 2014 — and he also earned two First-Team All-Pro selections during that time. This season’s All-Pro designations will be announced in the coming weeks.
This season, though, has been one of Miller’s finest. No. 58 has already tallied the second-highest season sack total of his career, as he’s brought down opposing quarterbacks 14.5 times.
Miller is currently tied for second in the NFL in sacks. He trails Rams’ defensive lineman Aaron Donald by two sacks with two games to play.
Miller has also recorded an interception — one that swung a game against the Chargers in the Broncos’ favor — and four forced fumbles.
On Saturday against the Browns, Miller earned the 98th regular-season sack of his career, which moved him past Ring of Famer Simon Fletcher for the franchise lead in that category.
All of these stats played a part in Miller earning another Pro Bowl nod.
He made the most of his last trip to Orlando, Florida, as he earned Defensive MVP honors in the 2018 Pro Bowl after recording the game-clinching strip sack and fumble recovery.
The game is scheduled for Jan. 27 and will be broadcast on ESPN.
Running back Phillip Lindsay was also selected to the Pro Bowl. To learn more about his season, click here.
