The Dallas Morning News’ Rick Gosselin has released his yearly All-Pro team, including yearly awards, and two Broncos made the list.
Chris Kuper, recently placed on injured reserve after suffering a broken leg against the Kansas City Chiefs, is one of the guards on the All-Pro team.
“Best blocker in NFL’s best rushing attack,” Gosselin wrote.
The second Bronco on the list is Von Miller, though not as an All-Pro. Gosselin believes Miller is the Defensive Rookie of the Year.
“Collected 10 1/2 sacks in his first 11 games before breaking his thumb,” Gosselin wrote. “He played with a cast the rest of the way and only managed one more sack — still a respectable 11 1/2 for the AFC West champions.”
BRIAN IWUH SIGNED TO ROSTER
The team announced on Wednesday that linebacker Brian Iwuh has been signed to the active roster, and safety Kyle McCarthy has been waived.
Iwuh is a sixth-year player who has seen action in 85 career games — including four starts — with the Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars.
He originally joined the league as a college free agent from the University of Colorado in 2006.
For his career, Iwuh has totaled 54 tackles, one sack, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery on defense. He has also recorded 61 special-teams stops during his six NFL seasons.
BRONCOS POPULAR ON NFLSHOP.COM
CNBC.com recently posted a slideshow of the top 10 best-selling jerseys in the NFL for the 2011 season. The list represents jersey sales from April 1 to Dec. 31.
Quarterback Tim Tebow comes in at No. 2 behind only Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
“In the beginning of the season, Tebow was completely outside the top 10,” the caption reads.
But Tebow wasn’t the only popular Bronco, as CNBC reporter Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) also noted via his Twitter account that the Broncos were the No. 10 best-selling team overall on NFLshop.com.
