Leighton Vander Esch will replace Luke Kuechly at the Pro Bowl, becoming the first Cowboys rookie defender to play in the all-star game since Everson Walls in 1981. Vander Esch led the Cowboys with 176 tackles, according to the coaches' breakdown, which is the most by a rookie in team history. He also had three tackles for loss, five quarterback pressures, two interceptions and six pass deflections. He will join teammates Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, Byron Jones and DeMarcus Lawrence and the coaches in Orlando, although Martin is likely to skip the game because of a knee injury that bothered him most of the season.

According to multiple sources, Marc Colombo signed a new deal to be the Cowboys offensive line coach in 2019. He took over on an interim basis for Paul Alexander after seven games in 2018 and had to work around injuries to Pro Bowlers Tyron Smith and Zack Martin in the second half of the season, as well as not having Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick all season. The Cowboys could have faced competition for Colombo with his former Boston College teammate, Brian Flores, expected to be named head coach of the Miami Dolphins whenever the New England Patriots' season ends.

The Cowboys can go about extending the contracts of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott or the first time this offseason. Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, Jones said he wants Prescott, “short term and long term.” Regarding Elliott, he said, “it would be madness to think any differently.” He has the same feelings about DeMarcus Lawrence, Byron Jones and others. “Now getting there, hell, I want a bigger boat,” Jones said. “The bottomline is there's a whole bunch of stuff that you want … Do you have the resources or do you have the means or do you have the plan to get there?”

If there's any question about Jason Garrett's future with Cowboys, Jerry Jones ended that, while speaking on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday. “If Jason Garrett was on the market two weeks ago, he would've had five offers for head coach," Jones said. "I know that. And so you've got to look at what your alternative is.”
