All the talk about the Dallas Cowboys’ free agency activity, or lack thereof, has gotten me thinking back to the days before free agency was even a twinkle in the league’s eye. I know I’m dating myself; but I can remember a time when fans could expect to see the same players on their favorite team’s roster year in and year out. It was a different age for the NFL and those who watched it.
I grew up watching the Dallas Cowboys with my Dad in rural Arkansas. It was a long time before The Triplets known as Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin rode into town and brought Super Bowl glory back to Big D. It was a long, long time before Tony Romo, DeMarcus Ware and Dez Bryant wore the Star. Fan favorites were some Cowboys whose names still ring a bell… Roger Staubach, Drew Pearson and Tony Dorsett…just to name a few.
