The Broncos added another Pro Bowler on Thursday.
Champ Bailey is headed to Honolulu to replace Nnamdi Asomugha at cornerback on the AFC roster. Bailey’s 10th trip to the Pro Bowl marks the most in league history by a cornerback.
He joins fellow Bronco Brandon Lloyd on the squad, marking the 22nd consecutive year the Broncos have had multiple Pro Bowlers.
This season, Bailey accumulated 45 tackles, a sack, two interceptions and 13 pass breakups. His campaign highlights include holding Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe without a catch and keeping Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald out of the end zone while breaking up two passes intended for him and drawing an offensive holding penalty against the receiver.
The now 10-time Pro Bowler and member of the NFL All-Decade team for the 2000s is currently tied for sixth all-time among Broncos players with 30 interceptions with the club. His 48 career interceptions are tops among cornerbacks and third among all players in the NFL since his rookie season in 1999.
Bailey is tied for fifth in team history with six Pro Bowl selections as a Bronco.
