ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer has been named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster, the National Football League informed the Broncos on Monday. Plummer initially was selected as a second alternate for the Pro Bowl, but injuries to Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer and Chargers quarterback Drew Brees (first alternate) resulted in him being chosen to participate in the game.
This is the first such honor for Plummer, who is in his ninth NFL season and third year with the Broncos. Plummer started all 16 regular-season games for Denver in 2005, throwing for 3,366 yards with 18 touchdowns and only seven interceptions in leading the Broncos to their third consecutive playoff berth. He had a streak of 229 consecutive passes without an interception, marking the fourth-longest such streak in the NFL since 1996, and finished the regular season ranked second in the league in interception percentage (1.5%).
Plummer joins cornerback Champ Bailey, safety John Lynch, wide receiver Rod Smith and linebacker Al Wilson as Broncos voted to the Pro Bowl. The game will be played Sunday, Feb. 12, at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu at 4 p.m. MST.
