The Denver Broncos will have a fourth defender going to the Pro Bowl, and he’ll be replacing an AFC West rival.
Broncos safety Darian Stewart was named to his first Pro Bowl as a replacement for Kansas City Chiefs safety, Eric Berry, who will not participate because of an injury. Stewart announced the news on Twitter Tuesday.

Denver’s “No Fly Zone,” will actually be well-represented in Orlando. Stewart will play alongside cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr., as well as outside linebacker Von Miller. Together, Denver’s defense was the only team to allow fewer than 200 passing yards per game.
Stewart had a strong season in particular, posting a career-high 3 interceptions to go with 68 tackles and a fumble recovery.
The 2017 Pro Bowl will be played Sunday, Jan., 29 at 8 p.m. ET.
