Dallas Cowboys Legend Larry Allen Passes Away at 52

Dallas Cowboys legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Larry Allen passed away suddenly at the age of 52 while vacationing in Mexico with his family.

Allen, considered one of the greatest players in Cowboys history and among the best offensive linemen in NFL history, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013. He played 14 seasons in the NFL, primarily with the Cowboys, earning numerous accolades including 10 Pro Bowl selections and seven All-Pro honors. 

The Cowboys released a statement on Monday morning expressing their profound sadness at Allen's passing:

"The Dallas Cowboys are very saddened to share that Cowboys legend, Super Bowl Champion, Cowboys Ring of Honor member, and Pro Football Hall of Famer Larry Allen passed away suddenly while on vacation in Mexico with his family on Sunday. Larry, known for his great athleticism and incredible strength, was one of the most respected, accomplished offensive linemen to ever play in the NFL. His versatility and dependability were also signature parts of his career. Through that, he continued to serve as inspiration for many other players defining what it meant to be a great teammate, competitor and winner.

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 Jones family and the Cowboys extend their deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to the Allen family and grieve along with the many other friends and Cowboys teammates that also loved Larry.

Memorial service arrangements and details will be announced in the near future."
