As a member of the Dallas Cowboys from 1992-2004, safety Darren Woodson was a special football player. Five Pro Bowl selections, three All-Pro selections, and three Super Bowl championships prove that fact. Not to mention he’s the franchise’s all-time leader in tackles with 1,350. Although it can be argued whether Woodson deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, there is little question that he belongs in the Cowboys Ring of Honor.
His lack of recognition in the Ring has many Cowboys fans scratching their heads. And as Woodson revealed himself in an exclusive interview with Landry Hat staff writer Dan Krupinsky on Thursday, the fans aren’t the only ones wondering why it’s taking so long.
“…And I’m looking at these names and I’m thinking that one of these days I’m going to be up on that ring. My name’s going to be up there. And for me it would be a great honor. It would probably be one of my greatest honors as a football player. But that’s not up to me. That’s up to Jerry. That’s up to the Jones family. If you ask do I personally think I deserve it? Hell yes. Do I think that it’s a little late? Hell yes. I gave everything I had and played more snaps than anybody in the 90’s. I played special teams, I gave it everything, man. Everything I had. So yeah. I’d love to be up there. I felt like I put the organization first before even my own health.”
