The NFL today announced that Colts cornerback Vontae Davis has been named to the 2016 Pro Bowl. Davis will replace Broncos cornerback Chris Harris, Jr. who will be participating in Super Bowl 50. The game will be played on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Davis will be making his second consecutive Pro Bowl appearance. He started all 16 games at cornerback for the second time in his career. Davis led the Colts and ranked tied for 11th in the NFL with 16 passes defensed. He also ranked sixth on the team with 50 tackles (38 solo) and contributed with four interceptions. Three of Davis’ interceptions came in the red zone, including two picks in the end zone to prevent touchdowns from New Orleans (Week 7) and Miami (Week 16). On two occasions, he intercepted passes in back-to-back games (Weeks 7-8 and Weeks 15-16) and tallied six contests with multiple passes defensed.
Davis’ selection marks the 18th consecutive year the Colts have had a representative in the Pro Bowl dating back to 1998.
