Broncos’ veteran safety Brian Dawkins was named to the 2012 Pro Bowl on Thursday, replacing Pittsburgh’s Troy Polamalu for the AFC squad. Originally named a first alternate in December, Dawkins will make the ninth Pro Bowl appearance of his career.
Dawkins will join cornerback Champ Bailey, defensive end Elvis Dumervil, linebacker Von Miller, running back Willis McGahee and left tackle Ryan Clady as the six players representing the Broncos in the NFL’s annual All-Star Game. The sextet are the most players Denver has sent to Hawaii since 2001. Full press release after the jump.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos safety Brian Dawkins was notified by the National Football League on Thursday that he was added to the 2012 Pro Bowl roster. He replaces Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu, who will not participate in the league’s annual All-Star Game due to injury.
The selection marks Dawkins’ second Pro Bowl with the Broncos and the ninth of his career to tie him with John Lynch for the second-most all-time among safeties. Dawkins, who played 14 games (12 starts) in 2011, totaled 51 tackles (31 solo), three sacks (38 yds.), six passes defensed and one forced fumble for the Broncos.
Dawkins brings Denver’s total Pro Bowl selections to six, marking the most since the Broncos had seven Pro Bowlers in 2001, and tying for the fifth-most in franchise history.

Denver Broncos' Chief of Football Operations, John Elway, has publicly stated that Tim Tebow is the Broncos' quarterback. He is signed for the next few years, until 2015, so the time to decide is here. What do the Broncos do with this talented, dedicated, unorthodox quarterback?
Some would say make him a tight end or an H-back. Others would say use him like Miami...
It is a simple ratings strategy, really. Tim Tebow equals big time television ratings. It is that simple.
So CBS decided that if they would not be able to feature him on the field in the 2012 AFC Championship Game on Sunday, they would attempt to do the next best thing and invite Tebow to be a guest analyst in their studio.
Apparently, even Tebow Time has an expiration...

The last game of Tim Tebow‘s 2011 campaign didn’t end the way the quarterback would like. It didn’t progress very comfortably either....
What happens in Vegas ... was pretty tame for Tim Tebow yesterday. The Denver Broncos quarterback was spotted strolling through the Bellagio hotel last night along with his brother and a friend ... after catching a performance of the Cirque du Soleil…
Tim Tebow is expected to make a full recovery, without surgery, from rib, lung and chest injuries he suffered in the Denver Broncos' loss at New England in an AFC divisional playoff game last weekend.
Earlier this week, John Elway made the unsurprising announcement that Tim Tebow would be the starting QB for the Denver Broncos as they head into training camp this year. While that’s certainly to be expected since the Broncos depth chart beyond Tebow consists of Brady Quinn and only Brady Quinn, I’m not sure that Denver will continue to pursue and utilize some of the spread...
Three NFL players have been given $7,500 fines for actions during the divisional round of the playoffs: Broncos linebacker Von Miller, Patriots safety Patrick Chung and Giants safety Kenny Phillips. Miller won’t be happy about his fine, which came for a late hit against the Patriots. He went on Twitter after Saturday’s game and defended…
MIAMI (AP) -- Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is meeting again with the Miami Dolphins about their coaching job, which will wrap up a second round of interviews by the team.
A second chance to state his case to be the head coach of the Miami Dolphins had Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy back on a plane Wednesday.
After possibly their biggest win of the season, the Denver Broncos turned in a lousy performance against the New England Patriots last Sunday, jotting down a disappointing mark in the L column. It would appear though that there was a more than reasonable explanation behind the loss: Tim Tebow, the QB who had pretty much achieved legendary status just a week ago was little more than...
