Jerry Jones Confirms Jimmy Johnson to Join Cowboys Ring of Honor

While there are two classes being enshrined to the this weekend, it's no surprise that got some extra attention from his colleagues tonight. But with that came a big moment; confirmation from owner that Jimmy will soon get his rightful place as part of the franchise's .

Jerry joined Jimmy, , and the usual FOX Pregame crew during the show leading up the Cowboys-Steelers game last night. As Jones and Johnson openly showed their mutual respect and appreciation for each other, Terry Bradshaw put the question to Jerry about the Cowboys' former coach being added to the Ring.

The contentious between Johnson and Jones is well documented. After winning two Super Bowls together in 1992 and 1993, the relationship broke down over egos and who was getting credit for the Cowboys' success. Johnson resigned a few months after that second championship victory.

In more recent years it seemed the two had patched things up, but Johnson's continued absence from the Ring of Honor has kept the question open. Most of the top players from those 90s teams have already been added: Aikman, , , , , and .

It's highly unlikely that Jerry got on that stage without already intending to make this announcement. And with other more modern names soon needing to be added such as , , and , putting a cap on the 90s could only be properly done with Jimmy Johnson's inclusion.

It's already being said plenty this weekend, but now it has a dual purpose. Congratulations, Jimmy Johnson! It's all very much deserved.
