ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos offensive tackle Ryan Clady and running back Willis McGahee were notified by the National Football League on Tuesday that they were added to the 2012 Pro Bowl roster.
Clady and McGahee will replace Miami tackle Jake Long and Houston running back Arian Foster, respectively, as those players are unable to participate in the league’s annual All-Star Game due to injuries.
Clady, whose selection marks the second of his career, has started all 64 regular-season games and two playoff contests since he was drafted by the Broncos with the No. 12 overall selection of the 2008 NFL Draft from Boise State University. He is just the fifth offensive lineman in NFL history to start every game and make at least two Pro Bowls during his first four seasons.
McGahee, who was also named to the Pro Bowl in 2007, posted his fourth career 1,000-yard rushing season (1,199 yds.) and tied for the NFL lead with seven individual 100-yard rushing games to help the Broncos set a franchise record for rushing yards in a season (2,532).
Clady and McGahee bring Denver’s total Pro Bowl selections to five, including cornerback Champ Bailey, defensive end Elvis Dumervil and linebacker Von Miller.
