INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (January 25, 2016) — Three Indianapolis Colts teammates have been added to the Pro Bowl roster.
Cornerback Vontae Davis will replace replace Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr, who forfeits his spot due to the Broncos’ berth in Super Bowl 50. A seventh-year pro out of Illinois, Davis will make his second consecutive trip to the Pro Bowl. He finished the season starting all 16 games at cornerback, tallying 16 passes defended, 50 total tackles, and four interceptions.
Safety Mike Adams was also named as an alternate. Adams will replace Kam Chancellor of the Seattle Seahawks, who bowed out of the game due to an injury. Like Davis, this marks the second straight Pro Bowl appearance for Adams, who had five interceptions and three forced fumbles for Indy. He finished with 75 tackles.
Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton fills in the spot left open by the Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald. The fourth-year pro Hilton finished the season with 69 receptions for 1,124 yards and five touchdowns. Like Davis and Adams, this Pro Bowl will be Hilton’s second in a row.
When Pro Bowl rosters were originally announced, the Colts didn’t have a single representative. The addition of Davis, Adams, and Hilton means the team has been represented in the NFL’s version of the all-star game for the 18th straight year. The Pro Bowl is scheduled for Jan. 31 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
