AP - Sports

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Dallas defensive tackle Jason Hatcher has been added to the Pro Bowl and will be a first-time participant along with teammates Dez Bryant and Tyron Smith.

Hatcher led the Cowboys with a career-high 11 sacks for an injury-depleted defense making the transition to a four-man front. He is replacing Baltimore nose tackle Haloti Ngata.

The 31-year-old Hatcher is set to become a free agent after spending his first eight seasons with Dallas.

Bryant had 1,233 yards receiving and set career marks with 93 catches and 13 touchdowns in his fourth season.

The 23-year-old Smith allowed a career-low 1 1/2 sacks in his second season at left tackle. He moved from right tackle after his rookie year.
