DALLAS (AP/105.3 The Fan) – One year after having five players named to The Associated Press 2017 NFL All-Pro Team, the Dallas Cowboys were shut out Friday.
Pro-Bowlers Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, Tyron Smith and DeMarcus Lawrence were candidates to make the team.
Frederick, Martin, Smith, running back Ezekiel Elliott and linebacker Sean Lee were the five Cowboys All-Pros last season.
Antonio Brown is one of four repeaters from last season’s team and the only unanimous choice.
In voting announced Friday, the brilliant wide receiver of the Pittsburgh Steelers drew all 50 ballots from a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the league. Brown missed the last two-plus games with an ankle injury.
He is one of four players to make his fourth All-Pro squad, joining New England tight end Rob Gronkowski, Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly and Los Angeles Rams punter Johnny Hekker.
The repeaters from 2016 are Rams interior defensive lineman Aaron Donald, who got 49 votes, and punter Johnny Hekker; and Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner.
In their turnaround season, the Rams led the way with six All-Pros, including two more specialists: kicker Greg Zuerlein and kick returner Pharoh Cooper. Running back Todd Gurley and left tackle Andrew Whitworth also were honored.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his third All-Pro team.
