When voting for the 2012 Pro Bowl, fans can vote for Denver Broncos middle linebacker Keith Brooking twice on the same ballot. In a possible glitch on NFL.com, the Pro Bowl ballot has Brooking listed both as an ILB—inside linebacker—and OLB—outside linebacker—for the Broncos. Denver’s two other OLBs listed are Von Miller and Wesley Woodyard. The Broncos were presumably given room to place four linebackers on the ballot, but with just three starters—Brooking, Miller, and Woodyard—Brooking somehow has shown up on the ballot twice.  With fans having the ability to cast an unlimited number of votes, however, being listed twice does not giving Brooking much of an advantage in the voting. A five-time Pro Bowl selection (2001, ’02, ’03, ’04, ’05), Brooking is a fifteenth-year veteran who joined the Broncos just before the start of the regular season and has started in eight games on defense, recording 36 tackles.  At age 37, Brooking is the oldest player on Denver’s roster, one year older than wide receiver Brandon Stokley and quarterback Peyton Manning. Brooking’s fellow linebackers Von Miller and Wesley Woodyard are having phenomenal seasons and have received the most and second-most early Pro Bowl votes among AFC outside linebackers.  Combined, Miller and Woodyard have recorded 133 tackles, 16 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, and 3 interceptions this season. Fan voting will remain open until the end of all Week 15 games on Monday, December 17.  The 2012 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 27, 2013 and televised live on NBC at 5 p.m. MST from Honolulu, Hawaii.
