One of the Cowboys’ stalwarts has made yet another Pro Bowl.

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will replace the Broncos’ Julius Thomas on the Pro Bowl roster, multiple media outlets, including the Cowboys’ website, reported Sunday.

Witten hauled in 73 passes for 851 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013. He has played in 171 consecutive games, which will rank most among NFL position players entering 2014 with Washington’s London Fletcher retiring.

Witten has been named to nine Pro Bowls in 11 NFL seasons. He joins wideout Dez Bryant and left tackle Tyron Smith as Dallas’ representatives for the Pro Bowl, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on Sunday and airs on NBC.
