The Dallas Cowboys will be well-represented at the 2024 NFL Pro Bowl this year, with a total of eight players making the prestigious roster. The latest additions include DeMarcus Lawrence, Jake Ferguson, and Tyler Smith, who are set to make their first-ever Pro Bowl appearances in the second year of their promising careers.
However, quarterback Dak Prescott and offensive lineman Zack Martin won't be joining their teammates for the Pro Bowl festivities. Prescott, who has earned the honor for the third time in his career, has opted to skip the event to be with his family as he and his wife expect the birth of their newborn daughter. In his place, quarterback Baker Mayfield will step in.
Similarly, Martin will not participate in the Pro Bowl due to his family expecting a new addition. Tyler Smith will take Martin's spot on the roster. Martin becomes the latest Cowboy to welcome a newborn into his family in the past several months, joining Prescott, who is anticipating the arrival of his daughter in March.
Despite the absence of Prescott and Martin, the Cowboys will send a total of ten players to the Pro Bowl, marking the highest number since the 2007 season when they had 13 players represented in the prestigious event.
