The Cowboys have two more Pro Bowlers on their roster.

The team announced that wide receiver Amari Cooper and linebacker Jaylon Smith have been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster. They are taking the places of Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans and Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly.

Cooper caught 79 passes for 1,189 yards and eight touchdowns for the Cowboys during the regular season. He’s headed toward free agency unless the Cowboys re-sign him or tag him before the start of the 2020 league year.

Smith had 142 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. It is his first Pro Bowl selection.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott, left tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick and right guard Zack Martin were also named to the NFC roster.

  1. If you are not selected as a starting pro bowl player, you ARE NOT a pro bowl player. Otherwise everyone on all levels of the pro bowl would be one. Either there is a difference in being a starter or there isn’t. Time to just make the pro bowl as a certificate and the rest of the alternates are particpant trophy winners.

  2. Que in the Dallas Homer Fans so they can start bragging about how many
    Pro bowl players they have. Too bad all those pro bowl players on the
    Cowboys have not done so well on the playoff success front.

  3. And Jason Garrett should be the Pro Bowl coach because all the fans really want is to watch the Cowboys.

  4. Amari Cooper was just given a beautiful opportunity to network and find his next team. Why Why would he sign with the Cowboys again? NE is very likely his next team.

  5. NFLPA must send letters to all the real pro bowlers encouraging them to take vacations and skip out because the more non pro bowlers that get to be named as alternates just hikes up salary averages because they use it on their resumes.

  6. Probowl doesn’t mean anything. All about all pro team (not including the new dumb flex position, which the voters don’t understand)

    I highly doubt BB would put up with somebody who drops the ball on 3rd down killing drives.

    He will be looking for top dollar and I am sure Belichick will do that for a WR who disappears for games at a time. He is only a #1 WR if you want to be a 2nd tier team. Much like the Cowboys. Also, T Smith being a pro bowler is perfect example of why pro bowl status is bogus. He used to be great. Now, not so much. Full disclosure I am a Cowboys fan. As hard as that is in the JJ era after he ran off the other good JJ.

  9. It is hilarious when folks get mad at the pro bowl selections. It’s the pro bowl who cares outside of the player and the players’ immediate family? No Cowboys fans are cheering for any pro bowl selections.

  10. Yeah, you wouldn’t want to select a first-team All Pro (Eric Kendricks) as a Pro Bowl alternate.

    —————-
    Smith 142 tackles; Kendricks 110 tackles
    Smith 83 solo; Kendricks 70 solo
    Smith 2.5 sacks; Kendricks 0.5 sacks
    Smith 10 PD; Kendricks 0 PD
    Smith 2 FF; Kendricks 2 FF
    Smith 1 FR; Kendricks 2 FR

    As a Vikings fan, I’d see no reason that Smith should get the nod over Kendricks
