Legendary Dallas Cowboys Lineman Larry Allen Passes Away at 52

Dallas Cowboys legend Larry Allen, widely regarded as one of the greatest interior offensive linemen in NFL history, has tragically passed away.

The team announced on Monday that Allen died on Sunday while vacationing with his family in Mexico. No additional details about his death have been disclosed.

“The Jones family and the Cowboys extend their deepest condolences, thoughts, and prayers to the Allen family,” the Cowboys said in a statement, “and grieve along with the many other friends and Cowboys teammates that also loved Larry.”

Allen was only 52 years old.

The Hall of Famer joined the Cowboys in 1994 after being selected in the second round of the draft and quickly became one of the team’s top players. In his first eight seasons with the star on his helmet, he earned All-Pro honors six times and was selected to seven Pro Bowls.

Fans quickly grew to love Allen, especially after witnessing his incredible strength, bench pressing 700 pounds.

He played 12 years in Dallas, starting 170 games across the offensive line. He concluded his career with two seasons at the San Francisco 49ers, retiring from the NFL after the 2007 season.

Allen, who won one Super Bowl with Dallas, was inducted into the Cowboys Ring of Honor and the Pro Football Hall of Fame shortly after his retirement.

“He was deeply loved and cared for by his wife, Janelle — whom he referred to as his heart and soul, his daughters Jayla and Loriana, and son, Larry III,” the Cowboys said.
