The Grambling State defensive back was labeled as too slow by many
NFL scouts, but that didn t deter the Cowboys from giving him a chance
by grabbing him cowboysdaclub.com/damontre-moore-jersey-c-51.html out of the undrafted free agent pool in 1981. He d
reward them by reeling in the most interceptions as a backup, which
ultimately landed him the starting role for legendary coach Tom Landry.
As an exclamation point on an NFL debut that nearly never was, Walls
would take home pro bowl honors in his rookie season. In his time with
the Cowboys he led the league in interceptions three times, was a four
time pro bowler and a three time All Pro. He d ultimately be waived by
Jimmy Johnson in 1989, but not before grabbing 44 interceptions second
most in Cowboys history.
This is the first time Walls has made it to this point of the nomination process, and it s also his final year of eligibility.

Let s give this another shot, shall we?
Terrell Owens is no stranger to being snubbed by the Pro Football
Hall of Fame committee, going as far as to proclaim he s lost respect
for the process. That s likely done him no favors to this point,
considering just how venomous he s been towards it all following the
cold shoulder he received in 2016.
he s a nominee once more facing a vote that on some level he truly
wants to receive.
Although he became a journeyman to end his storied, and exceedingly
controversial career, his numbers can not be denied. Owens finished with
15,934 receiving yards and 153 touchdowns, good enough for second most
and third most in NFL history respectively.
If the HOF is truly only about numbers as they say they are, Owens
should ve had a gold jacket by now, and not one he had custom made.
Owens finished as a finalist in the 2017 vote.
The Cowboys are heading to the offseason with lots of questions.
