Cowboys to add Super Bowl winner Woodson to ring of honor

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Former Cowboys safety Darren Woodson is set to be the sixth player from Dallas' Super Bowl-winning teams of the 1990s to join the franchise's ring of honor.

The team's all-time leader in tackles with 1,350 in 12 seasons, Woodson will be honored when Dallas plays Seattle on Nov. 1. The 20 current names are displayed on a strip that runs below the upper deck at AT&T Stadium, a tradition that started at old Texas Stadium.

Woodson joins former teammates in quarterback Troy Aikman, running back Emmitt Smith, receiver Michael Irvin, lineman Larry Allen and defensive end Charles Haley, who joins the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Haley's induction leaves Woodson as the only one of the six not in the hall.
