When Jerry Jones took over the Dallas Cowboys he was told to keep the Dallas Cowboys’ Ring of Honor exclusive. This year there won’t be any names added to the Ring.
“It’s probably unlikely that we will, but I haven’t made that decision,” Jones told ESPNDallas.com.
They added Drew Pearson, Charles Haley and Larry Allen last year to the ring. It was the first time since 2005 they added anyone. In 2005 the Cowboys added members of the “Triplets” Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith.
Among the next potential candidates for the ring of honor would be franchise sack leader Harvey Martin, though his days as sack leader are coming to an end. Darren Woodson who is the franchise’s leader in tackles is another candidate.
I would add Daryl “Moose” Johnston to that list. He played an unheralded position and was so good at it that they added it to the Probowl rosters. Arguably the best at his position and a fan favorite as well as a key part of NFL records like Emmitt’s rushing title and 3 NFL Superbowl wins.
