Witten Shines in Pro Bowl

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten continues to prove he's one of the top players in the game.

Tight end Jason Witten caught three passes for 50 yards for the NFC Sunday afternoon at the Pro Bowl in Honolulu. Five players from the Cowboys were supposed to play in Sunday's game, however just four actually saw the field.

Safety Roy Williams recorded two tackles in limited action and tackle Flozell Adams never played due to his equipment failing to arrive on time.

Adams had hoped to make his second Pro Bowl appearance after starting last year's game, but an apparent equipment mix up forced the seven year pro out of action. Adams was added to the NFC roster Feb. 10 when Philadelphia's Tra Thomas dropped out with a back injury.

Cowboys guard Larry Allen also started for the NFC, which lost the game 38-27.

Defensive tackle La'Roi Glover also had one tackle.

Witten's performance Sunday afternoon completed an outstanding season for the second year tight end out of Tennessee. For the year, Witten finished second in the league for receptions by a tight end with 87 for 980 yards and six touchdowns.

He trailed only Kansas City's Tony Gonzalez in receptions and total yardage.
