Emmanuel Sanders replacing Amari Cooper in 2017 Pro Bowl
Sanders is the fifth Bronco and Denver's only offensive player to make the 2017 Pro Bowl squad.
Sanders, who's replacing Oakland's Amari Cooper, becomes the fifth Bronco to make the Pro Bowl squad -- and Denver's lone offensive player. He joins cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr., free safety Darian Stewart, and outside linebacker Von Miller.
In 2016, his third season with the Broncos, Sanders graded out as the No. 15 WR out of 114 qualifiers, per Pro Football Focus. He hauled in 79 passes for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns, tying with Demaryius Thomas for the team lead.
This will be the second-career Pro Bowl appearance for Sanders, who signed a three-year, $33 million extension in September.
The Pro Bowl kicks off from Orlando on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 8 p.m. ET.
