With the Broncos headed to Super Bowl XLVIII, the NFL will need to name replacements for the five Denver players selected to the Pro Bowl.

That process has begun.

The Cardinals announced Sunday that wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been named to the Pro Bowl. He takes the spot of Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas.

Fitzgerald, 30, hauled in 82 passes for 954 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2013. This is eighth Pro Bowl selection.

In other Pro Bowl news, Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski will take the spot of Denver’s Matt Prater, the NFL announced Sunday night. This will be Gostkowski’s second Pro Bowl nod.

Gostkowski connected on 38-of-41 field goals and forced touchbacks on 65-of-99 kickoffs in regular-season play. He was perfect on field goals for less than 40 yards (22-of-22) and extra points (44-of-44).

The NFL will also have to tab replacements for three other Broncos: quarterback Peyton Manning, tight end Julius Thomas and guard Louis Vasquez.

    Fitzgerald? Really?

    Vincent Jackson’s numbers with a rookie giraffe throwing him the ball in an offense from 1986.

    78-1,224-7

    Fitzgerald played half the year with two injured hamstrings while trying to learn three new positions in Arians’ offense and still received double and triple coverage all year. Gutted out the whole season and was a big reason for the success of Palmer and Floyd. Not his best year, but really not all his fault. Consummate team player and a deserving replacement in lieu of Demariyus’ Super Bowl berth.

    Am I missing something here? I know the Pro bowl selection process has changed recently but why are they replacing an AFC receiver with an NFC receiver? Please explain.

    There are no longer AFC / NFC teams, just players voted on by players, coaches, fans, etc. Players are drafted by 2 captains, conference affiliation is not a consideration
