When the list of Pro Bowl selections is released each year, it’s always quickly followed by a thorough dissection of the rosters to determine who had been snubbed by being left off the list.

Being chosen as an alternate is often seen as an attempt to make good on such oversights. These deserving players still get a trip to the league’s all-star celebration, even if they didn’t rake in enough of the at-large vote.

Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory is in that category, according to a report from USA Today’s Jori Epstein.

It has been a monster year for Gregory, despite being sidelined for a handful of games this season with a calf injury and missing Week 2 while in COVID-19 protocols. He’s second on the team in sacks- with six in nine games played- and is tied for the lead in forced fumbles, with three. He recorded the first interception of his career in Week 14 versus Washington.

San Francisco’s Nick Bosa, Carolina’s Brian Burns, and the Saints’ Cameron Jordan were named the NFC’s defensive ends when Pro Bowl selections were announced Wednesday.

Gregory is set to become a free agent following the 2021 season.

The Cowboys had five players named to the initial Pro Bowl roster: Micah Parsons, Trevon Diggs, Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, and Bryan Anger.
