The Dallas Cowboys have resigned all Pro O-Linemen Larry Allen   This will allow the big man to retire as a Dallas Cowboy and remain with the team that dra him out of college.  This will allow Allen to enter the Hall of Fame as a Cowboy once he is elected.  He will also likely be honored in the Cowboys Ring of Honor.

Allen earned 11 Pro Bowl trips total in his career, the last coming in 2006, his first year with the 49ers. After playing with the Cowboys from 1994-2005, he played the final two years of his career in San Francisco. A formal announcement and recognition will be made by the Cowboys later, the organization said.

Larry Allen will retire as the second most decorated player in Cowboys history.  His 10 trips to the Pro Bowl is second only to defensive lineman Bob Lily. He was a consensus All-Rookie team selection in 1994 and the NFL Players Association’s pick for Offensive Lineman of the Year in 1996 and 1997.

It will be good to have Allen where he belongs back in a Cowboys jersey even if it is only for one day.
