Lawrence, Martin, Switzer Recognized By Pro Football Writers Of America

FRISCO, Texas –DeMarcus Lawrence and Zack Martin have already been named to the Pro Bowl and the AP All-Pro second team. They've also been recognized the Professional Football Writers of America.

Martin was named to the PFWA's All-NFL first team, and Lawrence made its All-NFC team.

After a back injury limited Lawrence to just nine games in 2016, he started all 16 games this season and post career-high 14.5 sacks tied for second in the NFL.

This is Martin's third consecutive selection by the PFWA since entering the league as the Cowboys' first-round pick in 2014. He recently had a clean-up procedure on his elbow but should be ready for the offseason program.

Ryan Switzer, the Cowboys' fourth-round pick in 2017, made the PFWA All-Rookie Team as a kick returner. Switzer averaged 25.5 yards on 23 kick returns and 8.8 yards on 28 punt returns, including an 83-yard touchdown in a Week 13 win over the Redskins.
