FOUR BRONCOS SELECTED TO 2016 PRO BOWL

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Four members of the Denver Broncos were selected to play in the 2016 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced on Tuesday.

Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. (2nd selection), outside linebacker Von Miller (4th selection), cornerback Aqib Talib (3rd selection) and outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware (9th selection) received invitations to play in the league’s annual All-Star Game that will be played on Sunday, Jan. 31, at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu (6 p.m. MST kickoff, ESPN).

In addition to Denver’s selections, four Broncos are listed as Pro Bowl alternates: inside linebacker Brandon Marshall, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, guard Louis Vasquez and safety T.J. Ward.

All four of Denver’s Pro Bowl selections were either drafted or signed by Broncos Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway during the last four years. The four players have combined for nine Pro Bowl selections since joining the Broncos.
