Dallas Cowboys Jersey Numbers: Updates for Nos. 56 through 60

Here is another entry on greatest Dallas Cowboys by their jersey numbers. This one focuses on number 56 through 60, though there are few updates to report.


Hollywood Henderson remains the greatest to wear #56 for the Cowboys. Bradie James wore the number for nine seasons, but he never evolved into an all-time great. He will play for the Houston Texans in 2012.


Kevin Burnett only played four seasons with Dallas, but he earned the most votes as the greatest to wear #57. Victor Butler has worn the number since 2009.


Linebacker Jason Williams wore #58 during his brief stint in 2009 and 2010. He is not greater than Mike Hegman.


Linebacker Brandon Williams wore #59 in 2010. He is not better than Dat Nguyen, who earned the most votes in 2008.


The greatest to wear #60 is guard/center Derek Kennard. Kevin Kowalski has worn the number since joining the Cowboys in 2011.


The complete list is below:

    No love for Eugene Lockhart at # 56?  And I would give the nod to Don Smerek at #60 as he was a valuable back-up DL for Dallas from 1981 to 1987.

    I should have specified that Henderson and Kennard received the most votes in 2008. Henderson just barely edged Lockhart (66 votes to 63). For #60, Smerek received 19 votes compared with 46 for Kennard.

    Interestingly, had Ray Donaldson not suffered an injury in 1995, Kennard would not have started at center, and I don’t think most would remember him.
