Romo, Adams are Pro Bowl possibilities

The Dallas Cowboys' traveling party to the Pro Bowl, which already includes six players and the coaching staff, could get bigger.

Quarterback Tony Romo and left tackle Flozell Adams are the most likely local candidates to receive late Pro Bowl invitations.

New Orleans Saints tackle Jon Stinchcomb's Super Bowl commitment did not open up a spot for Adams. New York's David Diehl was the first alternate. But it's possible that Minnesota's Bryant McKinnie, who dealt with several injuries during the season, could opt out of the game.

Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb is the first alternate at quarterback for the NFC, so he will replace Drew Brees on the roster.

But the odds of Brett Favre playing in the Pro Bowl are slim and none. Favre is an annual Pro Bowl no-show anyway and actually has a solid excuse after taking a beat Sunday from the Saints. His absence could result in Romo getting an invitation.
