Broncos Pro Bowl 2016: 11 Broncos among early vote leaders for 2016 NFL Pro Bowl

New, comments

Denver's #NoFlyZone secondary should be represented well in Hawaii.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

If fan voting for the 2016 Pro Bowl ended today, four Denver Broncos would be headed to Hawaii.

The NFL released a list earlier this week of the top ten vote-getters at each position for the Pro Bowl, and eleven Broncos made the cut. Only four of them, however, are currently high enough to get in.

Fan voting ends on December 15 (vote here). Players and coaches will account for the remain two-thirds of the vote.

The Broncos had eleven Pro Bowlers last year (nine were originally voted in, and three were later added as alternates). No other team had more players represented last season.

Denver ultimately hopes that none of their players will be available for the game—Super Bowl 50 will be played one week later in Santa Clara, California.

Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin will serve as team captains for this year's All-Star game, which will be unconferenced for the third consecutive year.

The game will air on ESPN at 6 p.m. MT on Sunday, January 31.
