THREE BRONCOS NAMED TO 2016 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-PRO FIRST TEAM

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller along with cornerbacks Chris Harris Jr. and Aqib Talib were named to the 2016 Associated Press All-Pro Team, it was announced on Friday.
       
Denver joins Dallas (5), Kansas City (4) and Atlanta (3) as the only NFL teams with three or more first-team AP All-Pro selections.
       
This represents the first time since 2012 (tackle Ryan Clady, quarterback Peyton Manning and Miller) Denver has placed at least three players on the AP All-Pro First Team. Additionally, it marks just the fourth time (1977-78, 96) the Broncos have had three or more first-team selections on one side of the ball.
       
Miller, who ranked second in the NFL with 13.5 sacks in 2016, is a first-team All-Pro for the third time in his career (2012, ’15-16). He is the ninth player in franchise history with three or more first-team selections and the first since cornerback Champ Bailey (2004-06).
       
Harris Jr. was selected as a first-team All-Pro in the newly-created defensive back position. It’s his first such recognition after receiving second-team All-Pro honors the past two seasons. He joins Cornell Green (1966-69), Emmitt Thomas (1974-75) and Everson Walls (1983) as the only undrafted cornerbacks in pro football history to make first-team All-Pro status with their original team.
       
Talib is a first-team All-Pro selection for the second time in his career with his first such recognition occurring in his final season with New England in 2013. Talib joins Patrick Peterson and Richard Sherman as the only NFL cornerbacks to make the Pro Bowl in each of the last four years while receiving multiple first-team All-Pro nods.
