Congrats to Drew Pearson, Charles Haley, and Larry Allen: The Newest Members of the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor

Jerry Jones announced that Charles Haley, Larry Allen and Drew Pearson would be inducted into the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor on November 6th. That's awesome because I will be going to that game and get to see the induction ceremony live and in person. The Cowboys Ring of Honor is the highest accolade you can receive from the team itself. Very surprised it's taken this long for Drew Pearson to get in, but finally he'll be inducted and all three were very important players in not only our history, but our Super Bowl Championships.

Drew Pearson
Roger Staubach's favorite target. Mostly known for the "Hail Mary" play against the Vikings in the 75 playoffs. A great wide receiver not only in Cowboys history but NFL as well and it's puzzling how he's not in the Hall of Fame. Helped us to three Super Bowl Appearances and win one.
Charles Haley
Not a homegrown Cowboy (spend his first four years with the 49ers and won two Super Bowls with them) but still a very important part of our championship defense in the 90's. Helped us win 3 Super Bowls and was a two time pro bowler in his 5 years with us. This is a in person autograph I got of Haley at Dallas Cowboys training camp back in the summer of 94.
Larry Allen
One of the best offensive linemen in NFL history, Allen spent 12 seasons with us making the Pro Bowl 10 times (11 overall) and winning a Super Bowl with us against the Steelers. A sure-fire Hall of Famer, definitely a true Cowboy in and out.
I was kind of on the fence about Haley, but he was a vital cog on the championship teams of the 90's.  Should be awesome to be there to see the inductions!
