ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -Denver Broncos safety John Lynch was named to his ninth Pro Bowl on Tuesday, replacing the injured Bob Sanders of Indianapolis.
Lynch joins teammate Champ Bailey on the AFC roster. Bailey and Lynch have both been selected to the Pro Bowl all four years they've played for Denver.
Lynch's nine career Pro Bowls ranks second among safeties in NFL history, trailing only Ken Houston's 10 nominations from 1970-79 with the Houston Oilers and Washington Redskins.
The 15-year veteran hasn't decided whether he'll be back for another season. Lynch is mulling over retirement, but is expected to reach a decision soon.
Lynch's body may have the final say whether he returns. He was dinged up quite a bit last season, missing a game with a groin injury and two more because of a stinger in his neck, which he suffered against Green Bay in late October.
The neck injury had him particularly worried because he experienced numbness in his fingers.
However, Lynch received assurances from doctors that it was just a pinched nerve and was soon back in the lineup.
Lynch finished the season with 62 tackles and one sack in 13 games. He also broke up three passes.
