Dez Bryant added to Pro Bowl roster

FRISCO, Texas -- Make that seven Dallas Cowboys in the Pro Bowl.

With Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons playing in Super Bowl LI, Dez Bryant was added to the NFC roster, joining Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Sean Lee.

This is the most Pro Bowlers the Cowboys have had since 2014 when they had eight.

Bryant, who missed three games with a tibial plateau fracture, finished the season with 50 catches for 796 yards and eight touchdowns. This was not the prototypical Bryant season due to his knee injury, but he also had three games with just one catch. He was held without a catch for in the season finale, but that was mostly because the coaches allowed him to play in only three series.

This will be the third Pro Bowl season of Bryant’s career. He was picked in 2013 and ’14 but did not play in the game two seasons ago because of a groin injury.

In addition to his teammates, Bryant will see plenty of familiar faces with the Cowboys’ coaches and staff working the game.
