Cowboys Cliff Harris, Jimmie Johnson, and Drew Pearson will receive the Pro Football Hall of Fame ring in Dallas’ first home game against the Philadelphia Eagles on September 27.
Harris, Johnson, and Pearson were inducted into the Hall of Fame at the August ceremony in Canton, Ohio. Pearson is a member of the 2021 class, Harris and Johnson are members of the 2020 class, and their face-to-face worship has been postponed for one year by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pearson was Dallas’ outstanding receiver from 1973 to 1983, and was the three-time All-Pro who formed the NFL’s 1970s All-Decade team. He was the only fielder from the team who wasn’t in the hall before August.

Harris, who attended the University of Washita Baptist University, was an outstanding tackler and coverman for the Cowboys from 1970 to 1979.

Known for his high-top shoes as well as heavy and reliable tackles, Harris formed the NFL 1970s All-Decade team and earned the nickname Captain Crash.
