The Dallas Cowboys could kick off the NFL’s preseason as one of the two teams playing in the Hall of Fame Game.
According to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, Dallas is one of a few teams being considered for the game by the NFL. A decision is expected sometime this week, after the matter is discussed at the NFL Owners Meetings.
The Cowboys last participated in the game back in 2010, a weekend that saw Cowboys great Emmitt Smith inducted to the Hall. This year, Smith’s longtime teammate in Dallas, Larry Allen, will be enshrined.
If the team is selected to play in the Hall of Fame Game, it will bump their preseason schedule to five games--which could be a good thing, considering that Dallas is transitioning from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 under new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.
