This is the second update to the series on greatest Dallas Cowboys by their jersey numbers. We focus today on number 6 through 10.

There are only three, including those below:

#6: Two players have worn #6 since the original post. This includes kicker Shaun Suisham and punter Chris Jones.

Suisham actually played in three different seasons for the Cowboys, but was never the team’s main kicker. He was in Dallas for part of the 2005 and 2006 seasons and wore #4 at the time. He became the Redskins‘ kicker, but Washington released him during the 2009 season. Dallas was having its own kicking problems at the time, and when the Cowboys released Nick Folk, the team signed Suisham. He was the kicker during the playoff run of 2009. He later signed with Pittsburgh.

Chris Jones served as the team’s punter during the final two games of the season when the Cowboys lost Mat McBriar to injury.

#7: The Cowboys drafted quarterback Stephen McGee in 2009, and he has been a backup since then. He started the season finale in 2010 against the Eagles and led Dallas to a win.

Here is a complete list of the players who have worn numbers 6 through 10:
