Dallas Cowboys Jersey Numbers: Updates for Nos. 26 through 30
This is another update to the greatest Dallas Cowboys by their jersey numbers. This entry focuses on numbers 26 through 30.
Cornerback Kevin Smith was the greatest player to wear #26 according to the 2008 poll. Nobody has come along to take that title from him.
Abram Elam changed from #24 to #26 before the start of last season. He had also worn #37 during his first stop in Dallas in 2006.
Ron Fellows remains the greatest to wear #27. Cornerback Cletis Gordon wore the number when he played in one game in 2009. Akwasi Owusu-Ansah wore #27 when he played in 2010. He played briefly for Jacksonville before returning to Dallas in 2011 and wore #11. He is listed as #26 for 2012, assuming he makes the team.
In just one season, DeMarco Murray became the toast of the town by rushing for 897 yards. Kenneth Gant received the most votes in 2008, but Murray could overtake Gant with another solid performance in 2012.
The only player to wear #30 since 2008 was backup running back Chauncey Washington. He will not overtake Dan Reeves for this jersey number.
