BRONCOS SAFETY DARIAN STEWART NAMED TO 2017 PRO BOWL

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos safety Darian Stewart has been named to the 2017 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced on Tuesday.
       
Stewart, a first-time Pro Bowler, will play in the league’s annual All-Star Game that will be played on Sunday, Jan. 29, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. (6 p.m. MST kickoff, ESPN). He replaces Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry, who is unable to participate due to an injury.
       
Stewart will be the fourth Denver defender represented at the Pro Bowl, joining outside linebacker Von Miller and cornerbacks Chris Harris Jr. and Aqib Talib.
       
As part of the league’s top-ranked pass defense (185.8 ypg), Stewart finished with a career-high three interceptions (36 yds.) in addition to posting 68 tackles (55 solo), six passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He was named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Week after recording three takeaways against New Orleans in Week 10. 
       
Stewart, who entered the NFL as a college free agent with St. Louis in 2010, joined the Broncos as an unrestricted free agent in 2015. In his two seasons in Denver, he has played 31 games (29 starts) and recorded 128 tackles (101 solo), four interceptions (36 yds.), 16 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
       
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 five years. The four players have combined for 12 Pro Bowl selections since joining the Broncos.
