Von Miller selected to 2020 Pro Bowl; three Broncos named as alternates


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Von Miller is headed back to Orlando.

For the sixth consecutive year, Miller has been named a Pro Bowler. The NFL announced the AFC and NFC rosters on Tuesday evening.

Miller, who now has eight career Pro Bowl selections, was the only Bronco to make the team.

Wide receiver Courtland Sutton, safety Kareem Jackson and return specialist Diontae Spencer were named alternates.

This year's selection moves Miller past Randy Gradishar for the most Pro Bowl selections among linebackers in team history. Miller is tied with Champ Bailey and Steve Atwater for the second-most Pro Bowls in Broncos history. Only John Elway (nine selections) has more.

He is also tied Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson and Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins for the most Pro Bowl selections among active defensive players.

Miller, who ranks 27th in NFL history with 105 career sacks, won defensive MVP honors for the 2018 Pro Bowl. He has recorded seven sacks this season and needs three over the final two games to tally his sixth consecutive season with at least 10 sacks.

Sutton, Jackson and Spencer could each fill spots if a player on the AFC team's current roster drops out due to injury or because his team advances to Super Bowl LIV.

Sutton crossed the 1,000-yard receiving mark against Kansas City and is tied for third in receiving yards among AFC wide receivers. He has posted a career high in both receptions and touchdowns this season.

In 13 games, Jackson tallied two interceptions, a forced fumble, a touchdown and 10 passes defensed. He was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week following his performance in Houston in Week 14.

Spencer ranks eighth in punt return yardage among players with at least 10 punt returns and third in yards per kickoff return among players with at least 10 kick returns.

Sutton, Jackson and Spencer would all be first-time Pro Bowlers.
