Allen, Haley to Join Pearson in Ring of Honor



    We reported earlier that Drew Pearson would be inducted into the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor. Now we’ve learned that he will be joined by former offensive lineman Larry Allen as well as former defensive lineman Charles Haley.

    Over his 14 year career, all but two of which were spent with Dallas, Allen was an eleven-time Pro Bowler, a six-time First Team All-Pro selection, and a member of the NFL All-Decade team for both the 1990s and 2000s. He won a Super Bowl Championship with the Cowboys in 1995.

    Haley spent five seasons with the Cowboys, in between stints with San Francisco, a span that saw the defensive end win the final three of his five Super Bowl rings--more than any player in NFL history. One of 25 members of the 100-sacks club, Haley was named First Team All-Pro twice, and won five trips to the Pro Bowl.

    Allen, Haley and Pearson will be inducted into the Ring of Honor on November 6, during the Cowboys’ game against Seattle at Cowboys Stadium. Pearson has requested, with no disrespect to the younger guys, to be placed on the side of the ring occupied by the older players--many of which were Pearson’s teammates--rather than the side with the Triplets--Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman--the last three players to be inducted.

    This will mark the first Ring of Honor induction ceremony at Cowboys Stadium.
