Ware, Ratliff named to Pro Bowl

Two members of the Dallas Cowboys were named to the Pro Bowl today, with both earning starting nods.

The game will once again be held at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii and be played one week before the Super Bowl on Sunday, January 29.

Two defensive players - Jay Ratliff (fourth) and DeMarcus Ware (sixth) were selected. Ware was named as a starter for the sixth straight year, and Ratliff earned his fourth straight selection, third overall as a starter.

"It's a great honor to be selected to play in the Pro Bowl," Ware said. "It shows that all the work through the offseason and season pays off. It's special because you are selected by the fans, your peers and coaches around the league.

"I am excited to represent the Dallas Cowboys and the entire NFL in the game. Since my rookie season, I always strived on working hard, being consistent and playing at a high level, and it really means something on a personal level to be rewarded."
