Cowboys' Adams joining teammates at Pro Bowl

DALLAS -- Dallas Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams was picked to go to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday.

Adams is going to his fifth Pro Bowl as a replacement for Walter Jones of Seattle. Jones recently had microfracture surgery on his knee. Adams joins Rayfield Wright as the only other tackle in Cowboys history to make the squad five or more times.

Adams has started for the Cowboys at left tackle since 1999 and has a current streak of 48 regular-season starts.

He'll start in place of the injured Jones at this year's Pro Bowl, joining teammates Jason Witten, Andre Gurode, Jay Ratliff and DeMarcus Ware in Hawaii. It'll be his third consecutive Pro Bowl and second as a starter.
