Clady, McGahee added to AFC Pro Bowl roster

(AP) — Denver Broncos tailback Willis McGahee and left tackle Ryan Clady have been added to the AFC’s Pro Bowl roster.

McGahee replaces injured Houston running back Arian Foster and Clady replaces injured Miami tackle Jake Long.

McGahee rushed for 1,199 yards, becoming the second running back in league history to top 1,000 yards for three teams, and he helped the Broncos set a franchise record with 2,532 yards rushing. He also was selected for the Pro Bowl in 2007.



This is also Clady’s second Pro Bowl selection. Despite a spate of holding calls in 2011, Clady became just the third tackle in league history to start every game and make at least two Pro Bowls in his first four NFL seasons.

Clady and McGahee will join defensive teammates Champ Bailey, Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller in the Jan. 29 all-star game in Honolulu.



In a series of front office moves Tuesday, the Broncos chose not to renew the contract of longtime strength and conditioning coach Rich Tuten. They also promoted Matt Russell to director of player personnel and made Brian Stark their West Coast scout.

Russell, 38, spent the last three seasons as the club’s college scouting director. A former All-American and Butkus Award winner at the University of Colorado, Russell joined the Broncos in 2009 after scouting for the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots.

Stark, 38, served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Yale University for the last three seasons.
