DENVER -- Von Miller continues riding a Hall of Fame arc in his career, adding another honor on Tuesday.

The outside linebacker made this fifth Pro Bowl, joining teammates Chris Harris Jr. (third selection) and Aqib Talib (fourth selection) in the NFL's annual all-star exhibition. The game will be played Jan. 29 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.

Six Broncos were named alternates: safeties Darian Stewart and T.J. Ward, defensive end Derek Wolfe, center Matt Paradis and receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. 

Miller leads the Broncos in sacks (13.5) and quarterback hits. He signed a six-year, $114.5-million contract in the offseason, and has delivered one of his best season.
