The Dallas Cowboys will honor three players Sunday during their game against the Seattle Seahawks, putting three more franchise favorites into the Ring of Honor.
Started by former team president Tex Schramm, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has continued to make it an exclusive club for only the best to play in the team’s history. On Sunday, wide receiver Drew Pearson will receive an overdue honor, and joining him with be perennial Pro Bowl guard Larry Allen and Pro Football Hall of Fame hopeful Charles Haley.
Pearson spent 11 seasons with the Cowboys and is most well known for hauling in a Hail Mary from Roger Staubach against the Minnesota Vikings in a 1975 playoff game. Haley, a finalist for the Hall of Fame the past two seasons, is the only player in NFL history to win five Super Bowl rings, three of them with the Cowboys. Allen was a six-time All Pro and an 11-time Pro Bowler.
