2012 Pro Bowl Roster: Ryan Clady, Willis McGahee Added To AFC Roster

The Denver Broncos will have two more Pro Bowl participant in two weeks when the 2012 Pro Bowl takes place in Hawaii. Denver Broncos offensive tackle Ryan Clady was named an alternate when rosters were announced and now he has been chosen to be on the AFC roster with the Miami Dolphins' Jake Long out due to injury.

Clady has played in every game over his first four years and made multiple Pro Bowls.

Joining him will be running back Willis McGahee, also an alternate when the rosters were announced. He replaces Houston Texans' running back Arian Foster. McGahee is in his second Pro Bowl.

The Broncos' other participants are linebacker Von Miller, defensive end Elvis Dumervil and cornerback Champ Bailey. Tim Tebow, Brian Dawkins, Matt Prater and Britton Colquitt were also named alternates, but the latter three are unlikely to make it. Tebow, though, could go if two out of Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers bow out. Tebow is supposedly the second alternate.

2012 Pro Bowl Roster: Tim Tebow Officially Announced As Alternate; Von Miller, Champ Bailey And Elvis Dumervil Make Active Squad

The 2012 Pro Bowl rosters were officially announced on Tuesday night and Denver Broncos quarterback was indeed an alternate for the AFC squad. However, outshining him and making the active roster are Champ Bailey, Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller, as reported earlier in the day. The other alternates did include Willis McGahee, Brian Dawkins, Ryan Clady, Matt Prater and Britton Colquitt.

Tebow was beaten out by Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers. Chances are pretty good that at least one of these quarterbacks and possibly two will need to skip the game, allowing Tebow to join the roster, provided he is not playing in the Super Bowl the following week.

2012 Pro Bowl Voting: AFC Roster Includes Alternates Britton Colquitt, Matt Prater

The Denver Broncos had three players named as to the 2012 AFC Pro Bowl roster and Tim Tebow has reportedly been named an alternate to the squad. He might not be the only Broncos player looking to play in the game. Kicker Matt Prater and punter Britton Colquitt have been named alternates to the team, reports Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post. Additonally, running back Willis McGahee, tackle Ryan Clady and safety Brian Dawkins have been chosen as alternates.

Prater has been clutch, kicking game-winning field goals during the Broncos' six-game winning streak. He even has Jesus praying to him. He is 18-of-24 with a long of 59 yards. Colquitt has made 92 punts and averaged 47.6 yards on the season. He's been instrumental in pinning his opponents deep inside their own territory.

McGahee rushed for over 1,000 yards last Sunday and has revitalized his career after it floundered in Baltimore. Clady has been a rock on the offensive line once again. Dawkins has injured his neck recently could be hard pressed to play in the game if he moved to the active roster.

2012 Pro Bowl Roster: Von Miller, Champ Bailey And Elvis Dumervil Named To AFC Squad

The Denver Broncos will have three Po Bowlers on the AFC squad when the announcement is made on Tuesday night -- if reports hold true. Linebacker Von Miller, cornerback Champ Bailey and defensive end Elvis Dumervil have been named to the AFC roster, according Vic Lombardi and Brandon Krisztal.

Miller is a rookie who has accumulated 11.5 sacks and been a leader on the Broncos defense for the entire season. An injured thumb has slowed him down in the last few weeks.For Bailey, this will be the 11th time he has been named to the Prow Bowl, part of a Hall of Fame career. Dumervil previously made the Pro Bowl in 2009 when he led the league with 17.0 sacks. He has 9.5 sacks on the season, all coming in the last eight games (at least half of a sack in each of those games).

The official announcement should come at 5:00 p.m. MT on the NFL Network.

2012 Pro Bowl Roster: Tim Tebow Selected As Alternate To AFC Team, According To Reports

While we are still a few hours away from the official announcement for the 2012 Pro Bowl rosters, it appears that the Denver Broncos will have one of its star players named as an alternate to the AFC team. The big name, of course, is quarterback Tim Tebow and he has been named an alternate, according to Vic Lombardi and Brandon Krisztal.

Tebow finished third among the AFC quarterbacks in the fan voting, but it is likely that Tebow could replace Tom Brady or Ben Roethlisberger on the final roster, as both could be held out of the game, either due to a Super Bowl appearance the following week or some sort of injury.

Tebow led the Broncos to a six-game winning streak during part of October through November and then into December before losing his last two games. He will get a chance at being in the playoffs by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

2012 Pro Bowl Rosters: With Voting Concluded, Rosters Announced On Tuesday Night

The 2012 Pro Bowl rosters are set to be announced on Tuesday night at 5:00 p.m. MT on the NFL Network. We will learn if Tim Tebow received enough support from the coaches and the players to make the AFC roster as the third quarterback. Tebow finished third among AFC quarterbacks in fan Pro Bowl voting, which accounts for one-third of the final total. Coaches and players might not be so hip on Tebow as the fans voting.

But might the Broncos have a few others on the team? Rookie Von Miller has been slowed the last several weeks with a cast on his thumb, but he does have 11.5 sacks on the season. Cornerback Champ Bailey is also a perennial favorite to make it on the initial roster or as an alternate. Either way is likely this year. ESPN's Bill Williamson believes Bailey and Miller are the best bets, but he does also list punter Britton Colquitt and kicker Matt Prater as possible selections. Colquitt and Prater have almost no chance with the Raiders' Shane Lechler and Sebastian Janikowski the favorites to take those positions.

Willis McGahee is a dark horse candidate to make it, but a revivified 30-year-old running back who rushed for over 1,000 yards might influence coaches and players to vote for him.

Pro Bowl Voting Results 2012: Tim Tebow Finishes As No. 3 AFC QB Behind Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger

Fan voting for the 2012 Pro Bowl ended on Monday night and the results came out on Wednesday afternoon. Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow finished third among AFC quarterbacks. He received 632,912 votes, behind Tom Brady's nearly 1.5 million votes and second-place finisher Ben Roethlisberger.

Several weeks ago, Tebow was trailing Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, but he picked up in the voting just as he was leading the Broncos to a six-game winning streak. Unless the coaches and players have enough in their votes to move someone ahead of Tebow in the overall balloting, the second-year quarterback should make the Pro Bowl.

Fan voting takes up one-third of the results while the coaches and players each constitute one-third as well. Remember, if Tebow makes the Pro Bowl and then guides the Broncos to a Super Bowl, he would be replaced on the all-star roster.

2012 Pro Bowl Results: Tim Tebow No. 4 In AFC Quarterback Voting

While Denver Broncos rookie linebacker Von Miller likely warrants a selection to the 2012 Prow Bowl right now with his 10.5 sacks in 11 games, there does appear to be a push for Tim Tebow to make the AFC Pro Bowl roster. No, he isn't even in the top three of voting yet, but he's getting close. Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio asked the NFL and found out that Tebow is No. 4 in the latest 2012 Pro Bowl balloting for AFC quarterbacks.

he is behind only the New England Patriots' Tom Brady, the Pittsburgh Steelers Ben Roethlisberger and the Buffalo Bills' Ryan Fitzpatrick. OK, Fitzpatrick is probably a bit of a head scratcher, but but he did have a strong start to this season before going into that lull like the rest of the team has done the last few weeks.

Win or lose until fan voting closes, Tebow will likely keep gaining more votes. But even if he doesn't make the top three in voting, injury or some other reason could prevent a quarterback above him from playing, as Florio points out.
