For the fourth consecutive season, the same three Dallas Cowboys offensive linemen made the Pro Bowl: center Travis Frederick, left tackle Tyron Smith and right guard Zack Martin.
Frederick was self-critical but complimentary Wednesday of Martin and Smith, reports the Dallas Morning News.
"My performance this year probably hasn't been to my standard," Frederick said. "I've done some good things, improved in some areas. Early on in the year, I struggled in a couple of areas, but I've improved throughout the year.
"When you look at those two, they're at the pinnacle of their positions. Zack Martin is arguably the best guard in football and probably one of the best that's played the game. Tyron Smith goes out on a weekly basis and dominates his opponents even when dealing with injury and you can't tell on Sunday. That's really impressive."
Martin said he doesn't take the accomplishment for granted.
"It's a goal every year and a great honor to represent the Cowboys," Martin told the Morning News. "You have to earn it every year and that's something we talk about in everything we do, and we were able to go out there and earn it again this year."
Frederick said making the Pro Bowl is even more of an honor considering the voting is an equal amount of the fans, players and coaches weighing in.
"To know you've performed well in their mind is definitely an honor," Frederick said, "and something I don't take lightly."
