Jerry Jones: Ring of Honor additions unlikely
By Tim MacMahon
OXNARD, Calif. – The one-man selection committee for the Ring of Honor is not planning to induct anybody this year.
“It’s probably unlikely that we will, but I haven’t made that decision,” Jones told ESPNDallas.com.
The induction of Drew Pearson, Larry Allen and Charles Haley last year marked the first Ring of Honor class since 2005, when the Triplets of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith went in together.
There are several former Cowboys who have strong cases for inclusion in the Ring of Honor. The list arguably starts with franchise sacks leader Harvey Martin and Darren Woodson, who holds the franchise record for career tackles.
They’ll have to wait at least another year, unless Jones changes his mind.
