Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will return to the Pro Bowl for a ninth time. He replaces Denver tight end Julius Thomas, who will be in New Jersey for the Super Bowl instead of in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.

Witten was an alternate behind San Francisco’s Vernon Davis, New Orleans’ Jimmy Graham, Thomas and Cleveland’s Jordan Cameron. He joins teammates Tyron Smith, Dez Bryant and Jason Hatcher for Sunday’s unconferenced All-Star game. Smith, Bryant and Hatcher all are making their Pro Bowl debuts.

Witten earns his ninth Pro Bowl in 11 seasons. He did not make the Pro Bowl in his rookie season of 2003 or in 2011.

In franchise history, Witten trails only Bob Lilly (11), Larry Allen (10) and Mel Renfro (10) for Pro Bowl appearances.

He finished second on the team in receptions (73), receiving yards (851) and touchdowns (8).
