ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Dregs on defense a year ago, the Denver Broncos celebrated a trio of Pro Bowl selections Tuesday with pass-rushers Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller joining star cornerback Champ Bailey on the AFC squad.
Bailey was selected to his 11th Pro Bowl on Tuesday, extending his own record for cornerbacks.
Bailey said it was special because he's in his 13th NFL season "and you don't see guys going to the Pro Bowl this late in their career."
Bailey said he thinks he can make several more trips to Hawaii, too.
He was selected a starter, as was Miller, the rookie inside linebacker who has 11½ sacks but has been slowed this month by a cumbersome cast protecting his surgically repaired right thumb. Dumervil was picked as a backup defensive end.
