Jerry Jones: Jimmy Johnson ‘will be in the Ring of Honor’

Former Dallas Cowboys head coach and current FOX analyst Jimmy Johnson was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in February of 2020, and on the eve of his induction, his former boss, Jerry Jones, let slip on live television that Johnson “will be in the (Dallas Cowboys) Ring of Honor.”

As a member of the Cowboys’ Ring of Honor, Johnson would join such notable franchise standouts as Don Meredith, Roger Staubach, Tom Landry, Tony Dorsett, Randy White, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and several others.

Such a move would be newsworthy for long-time observers aware of the many twists and turns of the Jones-Johnson relationship over the years.

After Johnson led the Cowboys to two Super Bowl championships in 1992 and 1993, the two agreed to part ways in 1993 amid many reports of their relationship having devolved significantly.

Since that time, the two haven’t failed to take shots at one another in public, including a notable tiff in 2014 in which Jones called Johnson “disloyal.” But they’ve seemingly reconciled in recent years, as Johnson was in attendance for Jones’ Hall of Fame enshrinement in 2017.

Jones teamed with Aikman, who quarterbacked Johnson’s Super Bowl-winning teams, to deliver the news. And Johnson, ever the jokester, couldn’t resist a quick comeback.

“While I’m alive?” Johnson asked.
