Cowboys offensive linemen Tyron Smith and Zack Martin earned first-team All-NFL honors from the Pro Football Writers of America.

Kicker Dan Bailey joined Smith and Martin on the PFWA’s All-NFC team, which also was announced Monday.

It was a repeat selection for Smith on the PFWA’s All-NFL team.

The Cowboys had no players selected All-Pro, which was announced by The Associated Press last week. But Smith, Martin, Bailey and center Travis Frederick all made the second team.

The four also earned trips to the Pro Bowl.

Smith allowed eight sacks, according to STATS, and had three holding penalties against him. Martin allowed two sacks and was penalized for three holds. Bailey went 30-of-32 on field-goal attempts.
