Muhammad Ali: Current and Former Cowboys Honor the Legend

The late Muhammad Ali goes on a very short list of all-time athletes. His greatness transcended his sport to make a significant impact on American culture and the social issues of his time. As such, it’s no surprise than many Dallas Cowboys players took a moment to show some respect to his passing. Two of the all-time greats from Cowboys history paid homage to Ali: On the other end of their Cowboys careers, the top two from our 2016 rookie class also chimed in.
