The Dallas Cowboys have picked up a fifth-year option for Pro Bowl offensive tackle Tyron Smith.

Smith, 23,  is now under contract through the 2015 season.

The option for the 2011 first-round draft pick is worth $10.039 million.

A former ninth overall pick from USC, Smith has started all but one game in his NFL career.

Smith, 23, signed a four-year, $12.49 million contract in 2011, including a $7.58 million signing bonus.

The Cowboys would ideally like to sign Smith to a long-term contract extension.
