The NFL announced rosters for the 2022 Pro Bowl on Wednesday evening, and zero Denver Broncos players made the cut.
The Broncos have had at least one player reach the Pro Bowl every year since 1981, so unless one of the team’s alternates makes it to the All-Star Game as an injury replacement, Denver’s 40-year streak will end.
Fortunately, the Broncos do have three first alternates — the top backups at their respective positions — plus three other alternates.
Here’s a quick look at the team’s alternates.

Simmons has recorded 68 tackles, five interceptions and four tackles behind the line of scrimmage through 14 games this season. Last year, Simmons made the Pro Bowl after totaling five interceptions.

Surtain has recorded 48 tackles, 12 pass breakups and four interceptions, including a 70-yard pick-six as a rookie. Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday he believes Surtain deserves Defensive Rookie of the Year honors considering how well the CB has played at a tough position.

Williams has totaled 1,103 yards from scrimmage this year and he’s scored six touchdowns (three on the ground and three as a receiver). Williams is 185 rushing yards away from a 1,000-yard season on the ground, which is impressive given that he plays in a shared backfield with Melvin Gordon.
