Jones Hints Larry Allen For Ring Of Honor

When Jerry Jones went to Canton, Ohio last weekend for the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction, he revealed his intentions of adding at least one player to the Cowboys' Ring of Honor this season.

Reports then surfaced that it could be former wide receiver Drew Pearson would finally be getting the call.

However, on Saturday after practice at Cowboys Stadium, Jones was asked to clarify the situation. While he didn't name any names, he didn't hint towards Larry Allen being the next player into the Ring of Honor.

"I'm not going to get into that," Jones said. "I don't want to because we're going to have a press conference on that. Certainly, we had a guy around here this weekend – somebody that's probably a first-rounder for the Hall of Fame. We'll give you an update on that later."

Allen was at the Cowboys' preseason opener Thursday night against Denver and he's not yet eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, having last played in 2007 with the 49ers.

Jones said the press conference to announce the next Ring of Honor inductee would likely occur "in the next 10 days."
