Jerry Jones granted Drew Pearson his overdue place in the Ring Of Honor, announcing that he would be inducted along with Larry Allen and Charles Haley in November.
Jerry Jones announced Friday afternoon that Drew Pearson, Larry Allen and Charles Haley would be inducted to the Cowboys ring of honor. The ceremony will be held on November 6, when the Cowboys face the Seattle Seahawks.
Jones last inducted new members in 2005, when he brought in Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin together. The new trio is less connected. Pearson was named to the 1970's all-decade team in an era where receivers didn't pile up the numbers that their counterparts today do. He was an unstoppable force in big games for the Cowboys, though, was first team all-pro three times, and caught the legendary hail mary pass from Roger Staubach.
Haley and Allen were members of Jones' Cowboys, with Haley playing a key role in all three Super Bowl winning teams, and Larry Allen winning one in 1995. Haley owns a total of five Super Bowl rings, most in NFL history, thanks to his three with the 49ers before being dealt to Dallas before the 1992 season. Allen is regarded by many as the best offensive lineman to play for the Cowboys. He was named to six first team all-pro teams and was on the all decade team for both the 1990's and 2000's. Jones said Friday that Allen was universally regarded as the best player on the Cowboys for most of his time with the team, including the years from 1994 to 1999 where the Triplets led the team.
