Jones on Allen: "The best of the very best"
Allen spent the bulk of his career with the Dallas Cowboys and is a beloved figure around Valley Ranch. Allen attends numerous Cowboys practices and works with the offensive linemen.
"Larry is one of the greatest players in Cowboys history, and arguably the very best guard to ever play the game," Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said in a statement. "He was obviously a special talent, but the fierceness and tenacity that he brought to the field separated him from the rest of the pack. I have never been more proud of anyone who has reached the Pro Football Hall Fame. Larry Allen represents the best of the very best."
Allen, along with Charles Haley and Drew Pearson, were placed into the Cowboys' Ring of Honor this past season.
