Two Dallas Cowboys were voted to the Pro Bowl team announced Friday night, and it was a first for each of them.

Fourth-year receiver Dez Bryant, who has 85 catches for 1,134 yards and 12 touchdowns, and 23-year-old left tackle Tyron Smith, the heart of the offensive line, were the only Cowboys picked.

Pro Bowl picks

Denver quarterback Peyton Manning earned his 13th Pro Bowl selection with a league-leading 1.43 million votes, but Kansas City and San Francisco led in quantity with eight players each.

Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman received 552,600 votes, most of any defensive player.

Under a new format, NFL greats Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will divvy up players in a two-day draft before the Jan. 26 game.

Briefly

• Bears: Kicker Robbie Gould signed a four-year, $15 million contract extension through 2017 that includes $9 million in guarantees.

• Jaguars: Defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks signed a four-year contract extension worth up to $22 million.

• Buccaneers: Safety Dashon Goldson was fined $60,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Rams receiver Stedman Bailey. Earlier this season Goldson was suspended one game for a hit, and later he was fined $100,000 over another hit.

• Broncos: Receiver Wes Welker was ruled out of Sunday’s game at Oakland because of concussion symptoms. Welker did practice this week.

• Seahawks: Cornerback Walter Thurmond was activated after missing four weeks for violating the substance-abuse policy.
