Rayfield Wright 70



For thirteen seasons, Rayfield Wright played more than 200 games, started at right tackle in six NFC Championship games, and played in five Super Bowls, winning two of them: (VI, XII). He earned his first of four All-Pro honors in 1971 and was voted to six straight Pro Bowls. Wright was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006. Wright was named first or second team All-Pro each season from 1971 through 1976, earned three All-NFC honors, and the Cowboys led the league for total offense five times (ranked 6th all-time at retirement in 1979).


His blocking and leadership as the team's co-captain for seven years helped the Cowboys win 10 division titles and six conference crowns.  "He was absolutely the best," said Roger Staubach. "Rayfield was a big, strong guy that was able to transfer his size and strength from tight end to tackle. He also had such quick feet that he was able to deal with some of the faster defensive ends and even the linebacker blitzes. If he got beat, I don't remember it."  Show your appreciation for Rayfield Wright with collectibles, photographs and more here at the Drew Pearson's Cowboys Legends Pro Shop.
