Cowboys Legend Larry Allen Passes Away at 52

It is with heavy hearts that the Dallas Cowboys announced the passing of one of their greatest players, Larry Allen. The former offensive lineman passed away at the age of 52 on Sunday morning.

Allen was a key member of the Cowboys’ dynasty in the 1990s, helping lead the team to three Super Bowl victories and earning multiple Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors. He was known for his incredible strength and dominance on the field, often overpowering opposing defenders with ease.

Drafted by the Cowboys in 1994, Allen quickly made his mark as one of the top linemen in the league. Standing at 6’3″ and weighing over 325 pounds, he was a force to be reckoned with on the field. Allen played for the Cowboys for 12 seasons before finishing his career with the San Francisco 49ers and retiring in 2008.

During his time with the Cowboys, Allen was a six-time All-Pro and an 11-time Pro Bowler. He helped pave the way for some of the team’s greatest offensive players, including Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman. His strength and talent were crucial in establishing the Cowboys as one of the most dominant teams in NFL history.

Off the field, Allen was known as a quiet and humble player who let his actions do the talking. He was respected by his teammates and opponents alike, often described as a gentle giant off the field but a fierce competitor on it. His work ethic and dedication to his craft were an inspiration to many.

Allen’s legacy will continue to live on in the hearts of Cowboys fans and NFL players alike. He will always be remembered as one of the greatest offensive linemen in NFL history and a true legend of the game. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Allen’s family, friends, and loved ones during this difficult time.

The Dallas Cowboys organization will honor Allen’s memory with a moment of silence at their next home game, accompanied by a special tribute video showcasing his incredible career highlights. Details for a public memorial service are yet to be announced.

Rest in peace, Larry Allen. Forever a Cowboy. #52LegacyForever. So long big man! You will be greatly missed. #RIPLarryAllen

May his legacy continue to inspire future generations of football players and fans. His impact on the game and the Cowboys organization will never be forgotten. Farewell to a true legend, Larry Allen. Thank you for everything you gave to the game we all love.
