No Ring of Honor ceremony this season
By Tim MacMahon
SAN ANTONIO -– The Ring of Honor will remain the same for at least one more season.
Jerry Jones, the one-man selection committee, ruled out a Ring of Honor induction ceremony this season.
“Not this year,” he said. “And it has nothing to do with any individuals. It has everything to do with the celebration of the Super Bowl, the celebration of Emmitt and then the 50th year celebration and really still in my mind opening the stadium. With all of that, we just wouldn’t have that [this year].”
The Cowboys have not added to their exclusive club since 2005, when the Triplets (Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith) were inducted.
That leaves out several strong candidates, such as Drew Pearson, Harvey Martin, Charles Haley, Jay Novacek and Darren Woodson. They’ll have to wait at least one more year.
