Three Broncos players earn Pro Bowl spots

The Denver Broncos have three Pro Bowlers on their team, and I’ll bet you can guess which side of the ball they play on.

The Denver Broncos have three Pro Bowlers on their team, and I’ll bet you can guess which side of the ball they play on.

Linebacker Von Miller and cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. were Denver’s selections.

Miller is second in the NFL in sacks with 13 1/2. This is his fifth Pro Bowl in six seasons.

Talib has made four Pro Bowl teams, dating back to 2013. This is Harris Jr.’s third. Both are integral parts of the NFL’s best pass defense.

It’s possible you see several other Broncos in Orlando. Free safety Darian Stewart, strong safety T.J. Ward, center Matt Paradis, defensive end Derek Wolfe and receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas were all named alternates.

The game is scheduled for Jan. 29 in Orlando, Florida.
