DeMarcus Ware named to All-NFL team; Murray, Smith, Bailey earn All-Rookie

Linebacker DeMarcus Ware was the Cowboys' only representative on the All-NFL team voted on by Pro Football Weekly and the Professional Football Writers of America. Ware also was the team's only All-Pro.

The Cowboys did land three rookies on Pro Football Weekly/PFWA All-Rookie team. Running back DeMarco Murray, right tackle Tyron Smith and kicker Dan Bailey all earned honors.

Murray, a third-round pick, rushed for 897 yards and two touchdowns on 164 carries before being lost for the season with a fractured ankle in the first Giants' game on Dec. 11. Smith, the No. 9 overall choice, played so well at right tackle that he likely will be moved to left tackle in 2012. He had three holding penalties and allowed 9.5 sacks, according to STATS, Inc. Bailey, an undrafted free agent, tied for fifth in the NFL in scoring wtih 135 points. He made 32 of 37 field goals.
