Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s selection to this season’s Pro Bowl makes for the 13th of his NFL career, putting him in elite company.
According to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Manning joins Jerry Rice and Reggie White with 13 Pro Bowl selections. Only Bruce Mathews and Merlin Olsen, with 14 Pro Bowl selections each, have more.
The 37-year-old Manning probably doesn’t have too many seasons left in him. But he may have a couple years left, which means he has a real chance to become the first player in NFL history to be selected to 15 Pro Bowls.
Other 2014 Pro Bowlers who have now been chosen to more than five Pro Bowls in their careers are Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (9), Saints quarterback Drew Brees (8), Steelers safety Troy Polamalu (8), 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis (7), Texans receiver Andre Johnson (7), Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas (7), Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters (6), Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (6), Patriots guard Logan Mankins (6) and Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (6).
