At this point, legendary Dallas Cowboys defensive back Everson Walls isn’t sure when he’ll be inducted to the team’s Ring of Honor, if ever, but he can take some consolation in that a lot of folks assume he’s already in.
“Man, I don't know,” Walls said of the Ring to ESPN San Antonio over the weekend, via the Dallas Morning News. “I have a feeling that when Jerry puts me in, it's gonna be with about six other guys. I'm not gonna get my day like Woody (Darren Woodson) got his day. It's OK, however, I get in would be cool.
“Even if I don't get in, a lot of people think I'm already in. Sometimes perception can be greater than reality.”
A Richardson native, Walls played nine seasons for the Cowboys in the 1980s, and led the league in interceptions thrice—only Ed Reed has done that since. Unfortunately, because it was the Cowboys in the 80s, Walls never got to win a Super Bowl with the team. He did win one with the Giants in 1990.
