So many deserving players on our team, but congrats to our 4 Pro Bowlers – Aqib, Chris, DeMarcus & Von! Great recognition from peers & fans.

In addition, four other Broncos were named as alternates: Demaryius Thomas, Louis Vasquez, Brandon Marshall and TJ Ward.
Perhaps most important, however, was the omission of both Derek Wolfe and Malik Jackson, not even as alternates. The only reason that’s important is because it may very slightly reduce their value on the open market should they hit free agency in 2016.
