Demaryius Thomas to replace Antonio Brown in 2017 Pro Bowl
This will be the fifth Pro Bowl appearance for Thomas.
Make that a half-dozen Pro Bowlers for the Denver Broncos.
Thomas is the sixth Bronco to make the Pro Bowl cut, joining cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr., free safety Darian Stewart, linebacker Von Miller and fellow wideout Emmanuel Sanders. Miller and Harris will also perform in Thursday night's Skills Competition.
Hampered by poor quarterback play this season, Thomas recorded 90 catches for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns -- his lowest output since 2011. Nevertheless, he led the team in receptions, yards, and tied with Sanders for the most scores.
This will be the fifth Pro Bowl appearance for Thomas, who's entering the third of the five-year, $70 million extension he signed in 2015.
The 2017 Pro Bowl, returning to the AFC vs. NFC format, kicks off from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla., on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 8 p.m ET (ESPN).
