BRONCOS WIDE RECEIVER DEMARYIUS THOMAS NAMED TO 2017 PRO BOWL

Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has been named to the 2017 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced on Monday.

He replaces Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver 
Antonio Brown, who is unable to participate due to an injury.
        
Thomas, is a Pro Bowler for the fifth consecutive season, joining Ring of Fame safety Steve Atwater (7, 1990-96) and Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe (7, 1992-98) as the only Broncos with five straight Pro Bowl selections.
        
Thomas is being credited by the NFL with a Pro Bowl appearance in 2015 after he was selected as an alternate but could not play due to his participation in Super Bowl 50 (note: safety T.J. Ward is also being retroactively credited with a Pro Bowl selection in 2015 by the league).
        
Thomas will join cornerback Chris Harris Jr., outside linebacker Von Miller, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, safety Darian Stewart and cornerback Aqib Talib 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).
        
In 2016, Thomas produced his fifth consecutive 90-catch, 1,000-yard season while catching five touchdowns, marking the NFL’s longest active 1,000-yard season streak. His five 1,000-yard seasons rank second in team history behind Ring of Fame wide receiver Rod Smith (8).
        
Since becoming a full-time starter in 2012, Thomas ranks second in the NFL in catches (492), receiving yards (6,870) and receptions of 25-plus yards (63) in addition to placing fourth in receiving touchdowns (46). Thomas and Sanders have teamed up to become one of seven receiving duos in NFL history to each record three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.
        
Selected by Denver in the first round (22nd overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft, Thomas has posted a team-record 34 total 100-yard games, a figure that ties for the second most in the NFL since 2011 when he recorded his first 100-yard receiving output.
        
All six of Denver’s Pro Bowl selections were either drafted, signed or re-signed by Broncos Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway during the last five years. The six players have combined for 19 Pro Bowl selections since joining the Broncos.
