Another Denver Broncos player is playing in this season’s Pro Bowl as Emmanuel Sanders has gotten the nod to participate, replacing Amari Cooper.
On Tuesday, the Denver Broncos saw Darian Stewart named to the Pro Bowl in place of Eric Berry.
Now, the team will have a player on their offense to represent the orange and blue in Orlando.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was named to his second straight Pro Bowl on Wednesday. He will be replacing Oakland Raiders wide out Amari Cooper.
Another AFC West rival player is being replaced by a Denver Broncos player. I’m sure we are smiles seeing that.
All jokes aside, this is such an excellent honor for Emmanuel Sanders. He was perhaps the best offensive player for the Broncos this season.
Not to mention he will be the only offensive player representing the Broncos in the game.
Emmanuel Sanders recorded 79 catches for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns in the 2016 campaign.
The numbers were not big in terms of career numbers. However, he still showed his ability to be a consistent player in the Broncos offense.
Sanders will be joining Von Miller, Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr., and Darian Stewart in the game.
To recap on Sanders’ season, he signed a brand new deal the day before the season opener against the Carolina Panthers.
The deal was a three year, $33 million dollar investment in the dynamic wide receiver out of Southern Methodist University.
He began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but never really found his ground in the offense.
Signing with the Denver Broncos after Eric Decker’s departure helped keep the 1-2 tandem in the wide receiver department.
Broncos Country loves Emmanuel Sanders. It is a great sight to see him playing in the Pro Bowl in 2017.
