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.
