The Dallas Cowboys were looking for competition at the kicker position during the 1992 training camp. There was an undrafted player out of Texas Tech that they figured they’d give a shot to, Mr. Lin Elliott.

He came in and won the job, replacing Ken Willis, and had a great 1992 season. At one point he registered 13 straight field goals, which was at the time a franchise record.

The Deuce played a season and two games with the Cowboys before being waived in 1993; however, his contributions to the 1992 World Champion Dallas Cowboys are enough to deem him the Greatest 2 in Dallas Cowboys History.

Check back tomorrow to find out who the Greatest 1 in Dallas Cowboys History is!

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll.
