ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver Broncos center Casey Wiegmann has been added to the AFC roster for the pro bowl, earning his first trip to the league's All-Star game in his 13th NFL season.

Wiegmann centered a line that set a franchise record by allowing just 12 sacks this season and was second in the league with a 396-yard average.

Wiegmann joined the Broncos as a free agent from Kansas City and earned the starting job when Tom Nalen needed season-ending knee surgery during training camp.

The Broncos never missed a beat and Wiegmann's steady leadership was credited with bringing along a young line that included tackles Ryan Harris and Ryan Clady.

Wiegmann has started 127 games in a row, the most among NFL centers, and has taken 8,046 consecutive snaps. Wiegmann joins teammates Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall as Denver's pro bowl selections. The 35-year-old Wiegmann is pondering retirement.
